 The advantage of PADI’s Tec40 course is that it can be completed with most of your standard diving gear, with some slight modifications that we are happy to help you with. Cost for this course is €499.

At the end of your Tec40 course, you will be qualified to:

Use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with not more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 metres

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

You qualify as a Tec40 diver through practical theory and training dives; including Tec diving drills
