Discover Tec

A short, confined water experience that gives you the opportunity to give technical diving a try without committing to a full course.

Overview

Are you interested in technical (tec) diving, but not sure if you’re ready to commit to a Tec course? Discover Tec is a short, confined water experience that gives you the opportunity to give technical diving a try without the commitment to a full course. You will get to try all the tec diving gear and take it for a spin. Your PADI Tec Instructor may introduce a few basic skills, such as primary to secondary regulator switch and gas shutdown procedures.

Be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent)
Be over 18 years old
Have logged 10 scuba dives
Have been medically evaluated and cleared for diving by a physician within 12 months

What's Involved in the Course?

The Discover Tec program will go over the equipment you use for Tec Diving and cover basic tec diving procedures, such as the importance of diving in teams. You’ll get in the water, make gear adjustments, then simply explore and get a feel for the equipment.

Discover Tec may credit toward the Tec 40 course if you successfully complete the Tec 40 Training Dive One required skills. Ask your instructor about this option if you’re interested.

At XTC we are committed to making safe and competent Tec divers that are able to meet the course performance requirements in a comfortable and repeatable manner. Tec diving has additional inherent risks (when compared to recreational diving) and we want to minimize these additional risks as much as possible. This means is that our training is performance-based, not time-based, so course prices are based on daily rates and your Instructor will discuss with you if additional training days are required.
