As a TEC Diver you search the unknown depths and take different gases with you. You get to places where others don’t go quickly. In the Netherlands we dive into the depths from the shore. We can also rent a boat for a small fee. If you take a PADI TEC Course in Sharm el Sheikh, the visibility and temperature are of course great. During the boat dives we go to Tiran and Ras Mohamed. All TEC Courses are possible with a twinset (Backmount) or with Sidemount equipment. If you don’t have all the equipment yourself yet, that’s no problem. If you want to take the course in Sidemount Equipment, make sure you have completed the Tec Sidemount Course first, so that when we go deep, you’ll have enough experience to dive with this gear.
Experience what it’s like to dive with Tec Gear and learn to streamline it. Extend your dives, dive with air or nitrox. Dive up to 40 meters with up to 10 minutes of deco time. Learn new hand signals, dive with up to 50 percent oxygen as a deco gas, and deal with problems.
Learn to plan with tables and software. Use a multi-gas computer and do multi-stop dives. You are allowed to dive with a deco gas with a maximum of 100 percent oxygen. Learn to deal with accelerated deco times and dive to a maximum of 45 meters.
Focus on your planning using two deco gases/stages. You use from nitrox to 100 percent oxygen in your stages. you have unlimited deco times and you dive according to your multi-gas computer (your tables are backup schedules). Two accelerated deco dives are made where you can dive up to a maximum of 50 meters.
