Mexico Underground & PADI Tec-Rec 40 open circuit diver

This course is the first in a series of curriculums that aims at providing the foundational skills set a technical diver requires to diver deeper and longer to a maximum depth of 40 meters with minimal decompression. The class introduces students to the standardized technical rig, foundational skill sets including use of the double tanks with isolation manifold, stage decompression tank and long hose configuration. The divers will learn team-oriented practices both for dive planning and execution. Emphasis is on providing a number of tools that the technical diver will need to execute technically oriented divers with safety in mind.

The course consists of a number of theory development sessions that are made up of self-study, classroom sessions and evaluation along with a progressive dive schedule.

We run this course over 3 days and include four dives for experience.

The Tec 40 class can be combined with both the Tec 45 & 50 levels in a 9-10 day combination class

The class fee includes all logistics and training materials, we highly recommend purchasing and owning your own equipment for cave and technical diving but would like to show you a verity of gear during the workshop so you can make educated selections for you.
