PADI TEC 40 Diver

The starting point for becoming a technical diver, the TEC 40 course introduces and develops your foundational skills required to progress on as a technical diver. This course is taught using back mounted double cylinders.

This course will always be taught with an ‘above and beyond’ mentality, prepare for long, challenging extended dives and a modern approach from me.

Technical diver orientated repair clinic bolt-on classes can be added to your PADI TEC Technical Diver training. A bolt-on repair clinic after completion of your tech class is a great way to develop higher understanding of how the equipment works, get real hands on experience and learn some effective troubleshooting skills.
