Develop competency & have the skills to dive to a max of 50 metres. Learn how to extend & accelerate decompression stops using up to 2 gases.

The third part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program is Tec 50. As a Tec 50 diver, you show that you’ve developed competency as a tec diver and have the skills to dive to a maximum of 50 metres.

You know how to make extended, accelerated decompression stops using up to two gases. It’s not easy to reach this level and earning your Tec 50 certification opens the door to deeper diving expeditions.

During the Tec 50 course, you will:

  • Make actual decompression dives as deep as 50 metres/165 feet
  • Use enriched air nitrox and/or oxygen for decompression
  • Use desktop decompression software to create custom dive tables and plan your dives
  • Qualify to make technical decompression dives independently

PADI Deep Diver Course Description

The Tec 50 course consists of four dives which take place over 2 days plus one theory session.

Before the theory session, you will need to read through the Tec 50 section of the PADI TecRec Tec Deep Diver manual and completed the Knowledge Review. Your Instructor will then review the information with you prior to your dives.

A primary focus of this course is mission planning and execution. You also learn more about handling emergencies and how to think like a technical diver.
