PADI Tec 65
The PADI Tec 65 course is for you if you're into technical diving and you know that to extend your depth range you need to use trimix, which is a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen. The Tec 65 course introduces you to using trimix down to a maximum depth of 65 metres/210 feet. There are many advantages to using three gases, but you need to know how to do it right
Successful completion of this course will qualify you to make multi-stop decompression dives that employ EANx and oxygen for accelerated decompression. Additionally, you will be qualified to use any trimix with an oxygen content of 18% or more. You will also be able to dive to a maximum depth of 65 metres/210 feet. As such, earning the Tec Trimix 65 certification makes deeper exploration a reality.
What will I do?
The PADI Tec Trimix 65 course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres /165 feet.
This course is for Tec 50 divers, or those holding a qualifying certification from another training organisation. The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen).
During the course, you will:
- Plan and execute at least five dives using EANx and trimix blends
- Use decompression software to create custom dive tables and dive plans
- Make training dives as deep as 65 metres/210 feet
NOTE: Your PADI Tec Course includes 4 days of Technical Diver training, materials and gases up to 40%. However, as with all training courses, certification has to be earned. Most students will complete the course within the 4 days, however additional training beyond this will be charged on a per-day basis.
