PADI Tec 40

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.


To take the PADI Tec 40:

•    You must be, minimum age of 18 years.

•    Certified as a PADI  Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent.

•    PADI Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 meter/60 feet.

•    PADI Deep Diver or proof of at least 10 dives to 30 meter/100 feet.

•    Have a minimum of 30 logged dives (10 with EANx, 7 deeper than 30 meter/100 feet).
