Technical (tec) diving means going beyond recreational scuba diving limits of 40m/130ft, often for the excitement and challenge of exploring new places that no one has seen before! It can require stage decompression stops, diving in overhead environments beyond 40m/130ft of the surface, different technical gases and/or use of extensive equipment and technologies. Tec diving is not for everyone. It requires experienced divers who want to go beyond their current limits and are willing to accept the added risks, training, investment and commitment it demands.

In Tec diving there is usually no direct “out”. Deeper diving requires further considerations when returning to the surface and the surface is often inaccessible in an emergency, so tec divers have to adopt extensive procedures, equipment and training to manage the added risks and potential hazards.

PADI TecRec courses are the quality benchmarks in the technical diving world due to their rigorous, yet logical training sequence and the PADI educational materials that support them. TecRec courses are instructionally valid and have a seamless course flow that takes you from an entry-level technical diver to one qualified to dive to the outer reaches of sport diving. Each level introduces you to new equipment and procedures to extend your dive limits.
