The Tec Instructor course is an entry-level Instructor training course starting your journey into the tec diving world and joining the PADI TecRec professional ranks. As a Tec Instructor, you’ll be qualified to conduct Discover Tec programs, teach the Tec 40 course and assist a Tec Deep Instructor with Tec 45 Diver courses (which is a great way to gain experience).
To enroll on a PADI Tec Instructor course, you must:
Prior to sending in the PADI Tec Instructor Application, you must also:
You must have, in your possession, a personal, current set of the following materials for study and use during the course and for reference afterwards;
You will need to have full technical diving set-up. You can dive backmounted or sidemounted (if you already have the training in sidemount configuration).
All required equipment is available at a very reasonable price for you to rent for the duration of your course, should you not have your own personal set.
Do bear in mind though, that as a Tec Instructor you will be required to have all of your own personal equipment in order to teach in the future.
What's Involved in the Course?
If you aren’t already a certified tec diver, then you will need to complete the entire Tec 40 and 45 Diver courses in addition to the Instructor training. Part One of the course focuses on the knowledge and skills required for technical deep diving. Part Two fine-tunes your ability to conduct knowledge development, practical application and open water teaching segments. You’ll also go over the philosophy, organization and marketing considerations for technical diver training.
How Long Does the Course Take?
Normal duration: 3-4 days
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.
