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.

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.

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

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


  • Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent.
  • Be a PADI Enriched Air Diver or equivalent.
  • Be a PADI Deep Diver or equivalent.
  • Have a minimum of 30 logged dives, of which at least 10 dives on enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres.
  • Have a medical form signed by your physician
