Curious about technical diving, but not sure about jumping into a course? Discover Tec is a short, confined water tec training experience. This experience allows you to give technical diving a try during one pool session. With this course, you can find out if technical diving is for you, and you can also earn credit towards your following PADI Tec courses.
Your PADI Discover Tec Instructor will explain the equipment you’ll use; moreover, they'll go over basic tec diving procedures, such as the importance of diving in teams. You’ll get in our 5.5m deep pool, make gear adjustments, then simply explore and get a feel for the equipment. Discover Tec may credit toward the PADI Tec 40 course if you successfully complete the Tec 40 Training Dive One required skills. Ask your instructor about this option!
What scuba gear will I use?
You’ll want to have your mask, fins and exposure suit. Your PADI Tec Instructor will have the technical diving equipment, including but not limited to – two tanks, primary and backup regulators, and technical diving BCD and harness or sidemount harness.
