PADI TecRec 45 Courses in Cyprus – DSAT TecRec courses provide the techniques and procedures necessary for diving beyond recreational dive limits.

The PADI Tec 45 course follows the Tec 40 course,  your training as a PADI tec diver further and deeper. It is the second sub-course in the FULL PADI Tec Diver course.  Padi Tec 40 – Padi Tec 45 – Padi Tec 50

PADI DSAT TecRec 45 Courses in Cyprus is the next step in technical diving range with the use of Full Technical Diving Rig. It involves diving beyond the normal limits of recreational scuba diving to a maximum depth of 45 metres. Participating in Easy Divers tec diving, requires additional experience, training and (of course) equipment beyond that of recreational diving.

In recreational diving and the tek 40 course you use one scuba tank (or maybe you use a double) but tech divers typically wear twin cylinders, plus one stage/deco or more additional cylinders, each with different gas blends EANx 50 and also 100% oxygen. They usually have two or more completely independent regulators and dive computers and pre-planned custom dive tables, as well as other backups to regular dive gear.

What will PADI Tec 45 qualify me to do?

  • Develop the skills, equipment and planning needed to dive to a maximum of 45 metres.
  • Dive in standard technical diving gear and/or sidemount stage/deco cylinders.
  • Gain the knowledge to plan and execute single and repetitive decompression dives.
  • Use a single stage cylinder of EANx or 100% oxygen to add safety or add conservatism to the decompression stops.

What will I do on PADI Tec 45?

Under the direct supervision of our Technical Instructor team you will  qualify as a Padi Tec 45 diver through practical theory and training dives; including tec diving drills and techniques. These are built upon skills you have already mastered in the Tec 40.

Skills undertaken will include:

  • Students must use full technical rig; unlike the Tec 40 course
  • Accelerate deco by actually switching a multi gas computer or by using desktop deco software; divers simulate up to four different deco stops (e.g. 21m 18m 15m 12m, 9m, 6m and 3m)
  • Use two stage/deco cylinders with up to 100% O2
  • Full technical equipment, including stage/deco cylinder, demonstrate buoyancy control and the ability to hover over the bottom for not less than one minute
  • Swim not less than 18 metres with no mask on, while sharing gas via long hose as the receiver
  • Demonstrate managing a drift decompression using a lift bag/DSMB after primary BCD failure by ascending, establishing neutral buoyancy and beginning a simulated accelerated neutrally buoyant decompression
