TEC 50 Technical Diving Equipment And Procedures

Tec 50 Course

The Tec 50 course completes your training as an entry-level tec diver, taking you past the limits of recreational diving.

Prerequisites

You must be:

  • A PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
  • A PADI Rescue Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
  • A PADI Enriched Air Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
  • A DSAT Tec 45 Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Have a minimum of 100 logged dives, of which
    • 20 dives must be enriched air dives
    • 25 dives must be deeper than 18 metres/60 feet
    • at least 20 dives must be deeper than 30 metres/100 feet
  • Participants must be at least 18 years old
  • Before participants take part they must fill out Galaxsea's Application and Medical Forms 

What You Learn

During the Tec 50 course, you:

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


The Scuba Gear You'll Use

You’ll use full technical equipment and you may use a technical sidemount configuration, plus two stage/decompression cylinders. Your Tec Deep Instructor may also introduce you to using trimix on the last open water dive.

The Fun Part

Knowing 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.

The Learning Materials You'll Need

The Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak, which introduces you to tec diving lingo, emergency procedures, decompression and stage cylinder handling and gas planning. The pack includes a manual, dive planning checklist and dive planning slate. The optional Equipment Set-up and Key Skills video on DVD is a great tool to help you practice at home in between your tec diving adventures.
