Tec 40

Who should take this course?

The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. It’s a great place to start because it’s the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course and bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving. You gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your tec diver training. You will qualify to make limited decompression dives to 40 metres.


What will you learn?

The Tec 40 course consists of three knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four training dives. You’ll learn about:

  • Technical diving’s risks and responsibilities
  • Technical diving equipment, proper rigging and set up
  • Gas planning, oxygen limits and decompression planning
  • Team diving techniques and emergency procedures, such as dealing with free flows, manifold leaks and out of gas situations

What scuba gear will you use?

You’ll start with your basic scuba diving equipment and add technical equipment which essentially means you’ll begin to double up on gear. You may dive with backmounted or sidemounted cylinders. Scuba Evolution may have you dive with EANx for additional conservatism.

How can you start learning now?

Contact Scuba Evolution to enroll in the course and get your materials. Start to study using the with the Tec Deep Diver manual as well as the Equipment Set-up and Key Skills video. Your PADI Instructor will then meet with you to schedule knowledge review sessions along with your Tec Dives. You’ll continue to use the Tec Deep Diver manual through your Tec 45 and Tec 50 courses.
