PADI TecRec programs
The third part of the full Tec Deep Diver program is PADI Tec 50. As a Tec 50 diver, you show that you’ve developed competency as a Tec diver and have the skills to dive to a maximum of 50 meters/165 feet.
You know how to make extended, accelerated decompression stops using up to two gases.
It’s not easy to reach this level and earning your Tec 50 certification opens the door to deeper diving expeditions.
• You must be, minimum age of 18 years.
• Certified as a PADI Tec 45 Diver or equivalent.
• Have a minimum of 100 logged dives, with at least 20 dives on enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 meters/60 feet and 15 dives deeper than 30 meters/100 feet
You also need to have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
• Note for the purposes of this level, a qualifying technical certification is one that qualifies the student to make decompression dives to 45 meters/145 feet using air, EANx and oxygen using open circuit scuba equipment, ask us if there is any doubt.
The Tec 50 course includes two knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four open water dives.
