PADI Tec 45

PADI Tec 45

The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You'll extend your depth limit to 45 metres and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder. It puts you in a complete tech diving rig, which can be either backmount or sidemount. You'll also make accelerated decompression dives using EANx or pure oxygen. This is a course where you'll rise to the challenge and make the commitment to become a technical diver.

How do I begin?

You start with the training materials. We will provide you with a PADI Tec Deep Diver crewpack (if you don't already have one from your Tec 40 course) so you can do all your studying at home before you come to Cyprus.

What's in the course?

Your Tec 45 training consists of three knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four open water dives. Building on what you learned in the Tec 40 course, you focus on the function and maintenance of tech diving equipment and associated issues. You continue fine-tuning gas planning and calculating accelerated decompression stops. Plus, you learn to think like a technical diver.

How long does it take?

The PADI Tec 45 course takes 3 days.

What qualifications do I need?

The PADI Tec 40 is the prerequisite and you need to be a PADI Rescue Diver with 50 logged dives and have done at least 12 dives on Nitrox deeper than 18m and 10 dives deeper than 30m.

The minimum age of enrolment on this programme is 18yrs.

You will need a medical statement signed by your doctor within the last 12 months.

If you have any medical conditions you think may prevent you from scuba diving please feel free to contact us and we will try to be of assistance.

Once you have completed your Tec 45 course why not spend some time with us on Zenobia practising your newly learned skills? And start planning your Tec 50 course.
