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.
