PADI Technical Programs 

The PADI/Ocean Explorers TecRec courses provide the techniques and procedures necessary for diving beyond recreational dive limits. These are some of the most intensive, yet exhilarating, courses you'll find.

Technical diving isn't for everyone but if this type of diving appeals to you and you're willing to accept the risks, responsibilities and obligations, you'll find it one of the most rewarding dive experiences you'll ever have. 

Tec Deep Diver

After successful completion of the Tec Deep Diver course you'll be able to conduct gas-switch extended no-decompression dives, decompression dives and accelerated decompression dives using air and enriched air to a depth of 165 feet. You'll also understand the hazards and risks involved in technical diving, as well as how to prepare for and handle reasonable foreseeable technical diving emergencies.

Course Start Dates

Tec 40, 50 and 60

If you're interested in technical diving, but haven't yet met the prerequisites for the Tec Deep Diver course, you can consider enrolling in the Tec 40 Diver course. It is also a subcourse of the full Tec Deep Diver course.

You'll learn to make gas switch, extended no-decompression dives using air and enriched air to 10 feet. You'll also prepare for and respond to foreseeable technical diving emergencies. Since it's part of the Tec Deep Diver course, your Tec 40 course training credits toward the Tec Deep certification.
