Activity description

TecRec is part of the Technical Diving PADI courses. It means that after successfully completing the program, you will be an advanced technical diver. It goes beyond the limits of recreational diving and you get to explore the underwater life below 40 meters.

It's a big challenge to start a TecRec program, as you get to see places that no one has ever seen before - places that are simply magical. There are many risks when you dive down to 40 or 50 meters as you cannot reach the surface in case of an emergency. Aquatic is a fully trained and experienced diving center that will help you reach your diving limits with safety. 

The TecRec, DSAT 40/45/50 Tec Diver course is an entry-level technical open circuit diving course. It is part of the DSAT TecRec program (TecRec is the encompassing overall name for all DSAT technical diving courses). By definition, technical diving (tec diving) takes divers beyond the limits of recreational diving.

The TecRec program addresses professional divers who want to surpass their limits and learn how to make limited decompression dives up to 40, 45 or 50 meters below the surface. The full technical decompression diving will get you from the recreational diving up to the next level.

In order to enroll in a TecRec you need to be an Advanced Open Water Diver, a PADI enriched Air Diver with at least ten dives using enriched air deeper than 18 meters, a PADI deep diver with at least 10 dives to 30 meters, 18 years old with 30 logged dives. In case you do not fulfill the prerequisites, you can contact Aquatic to give you extra courses before following the TecRec program. 

After successfully completing the program you will be able to dive beyond 40 meters using stage decompression. You will feel confident using the required technologies and the extensive equipment for accelerated decompression while diving in an environment below 40 meters of the surface. Of course, upon successfully completing each TecRec course your dives are logged, and you obtain your certification after the exam which takes place at the end of each course to recap and perform what you have learned.

The Tec 40 course introduces divers to limited decompression diving within accepted recreational depth limits. Although the student who clearly intends to continue through Tec 50 is encouraged to complete Tec 40 in complete tec diving gear, the limits of the Tec 40 qualification allow more flexibility. Therefore, to accommodate divers interested in very limited tec diving, the Tec 40 equipment requirements are only a bit beyond those of the standard recreational kit.

Objectives

A Tec 40 diver is qualified to

• Use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with no more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 metres/130 feet.

• Use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.

Itinerary

You will need to complete 4 dives to get the Tec40 certification. It is a 4 days course having 3 hours approx. of diving per day (55min. approx. underwater). If you want you can have 2 dives per day and complete the course in 2 days.

The Tec 45 course provides a transitional qualification while continuing to develop as a technical diver. The equipment requirements are the same as for the Tec Deep Diver Course.

This diver is qualified to make limited technical decompression dives using the equipment and the procedures used at the Tec Deep Diver level. However, qualifications are narrow, reflecting comparatively limited training and experience. The expectation is that a Tec 45 diver plans to continue on to Tec 50.

Objectives

• Make single and repetitive dives to a maximum depth of 45 metres/145 feet.

• Use a single decompression gas of EANx, or oxygen, to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression. In addition to the Tec 40 course requirements, the Tec 45 course consists of knowledge development, three practical application sessions, one confined or limited open water dive, two open water no stop dives (simulated decompression) and one open water decompression dive.

Itinerary

You will need to complete 4 dives to get the Tec45 certification. It is a 4 days course having 3 hours approx. of diving per day (55min. approx. underwater). If you want you can have 2 dives per day and complete the course in 2 days.

The Tec 50 course is the complete, entry-level skill set for extensive open circuit deep decompression tec diving (formerly Tec Deep Diver). The diver is qualified to make technical decompression dives within the limits of training and equipment.

Objectives

• Use air, EANx and oxygen for multiple stop decompression dives as deep as 50 metres/165 feet using standard open circuit, multiple cylinder (backmount and/or sidemount) tec diving equipment.

• Use two decompression gases (EANx and/or oxygen) to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression.

Itinerary

You will need to complete 4 dives to get the Tec50 certification. It is a 4 days course having 3 hours approx. of diving per day (55min. approx. underwater). If you want you can have 2 dives per day and complete the course in 2 days.
