Cebu in the Philippines is ideal for technical diving. Our PADI TecRec Dive Courses and other technical dive courses, like wreck diving, are taught at our Tec Dive Academy at one of our branches here in Cebu, though under the right circumstances actual tec dives can be conducted directly at the recreational dive center here in Plantation Bay Resort. 

Technical dive courses are taught in English, Japanese and Polish by our by our experienced technical dive instructor team, Greg Maciejowski  and Satoshi Toyoda, who is actually one of the highest qualified technical dive instructors trainers in the world.

 

 

Overview of PADI TecRec Dive Courses

 

 

Tec 40 Course

If you're interested in technical diving, but haven't yet met the prerequisites for the PADI Tec 50 Diver course or PADI Tec 45 course, you can consider enrolling in the PADI Tec 40 course. It is the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver course and consists of the first four dives. Because you can do one of  these dives in confined water (such as a swimming pool), many divers start the Tec 40 courses in the winter months, ready to continue in open water when spring arrives.

You'll learn to

  • Use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with no more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 metres/130 feet.
  • Use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.

Since it's part of the course, your PADI Tec 40 course training credits toward the PADI Tec 45 and Tec 50 courses.

The Scuba Gear You'll Use

You use recreational scuba equipment, with some minor additions to enhance your ability to deal with tec diving conditions.

The Learning Materials You'll Need

You'll use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak, which introduces you to

  • tec diving lingo
  • emergency procedures
  • decompression and stage cylinder handling
  • gas planning

The pak 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. You'll continue to use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak through Tec 50.

 

 

Tec 45 Course  

The Tec 45 course picks up where Tec 40 leaves off and  takes your training as a tec diver further and deeper. It is the second subcourse in the full PADI Tec Diver course

What You Learn

  • The skills and equipment and planning need to dive to a maximum of 45 metres/145 feet
  • The knowledge to plan and execute single and repetitive decompression dives using a single stage cylinder of EANx or oxygen to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression stops.
  • There would be no time limit to amount of decompression
  • Prepare for and respond to foreseeable technical diving emergencies 
  • Master the basic skills and procedures you’ll need as you move into deeper technical diving
