TDI: Decompression Procedures ⎜PADI Tec-Rec: Tec 45

TEC Diver Level 2 will build on what you learned in your first tec diving course, focusing more on gas planning and equipment maintenance.

The second tec diving qualification will take you beyond normal recreational diving limits and give you your first real taste of technical diving. The course is designed to introduce you to using staged decompression to allow you to undertake deeper, longer dives.

TEC Diver Level 2:
  • Teaches you to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives and use EANx or pure oxygen
  • Introduces you to staged decompression
  • Extends your depth limit to 45 meters

Among the aspects covered in this qualification are equipment configuration, decompression techniques, gas management, decompression gases, contingency planning and problem solving.

TEC Diver Level 2 is typically taught on a twinset with one stage cylinder.

Tec Diver Level 2 in Dahab

The course will take place not only inside the Dahab bay training area. So you will have the chance to visit some of the fantastic dive sites that Dahab has to offer.

And once you are certified you can spend the rest of your time in Dahab exploring our fantastic dive sites in a completely different way. For example, you will be able to dive the full Canyon.

Helitrox Diver Course

Add Helium to your Tec Diver Level 2 course and become a Helitrox diver! TDI Helitrox course is an alternative to TDI Decompression Procedures for dives between 30m-45m. Instead of air or nitrox, you will use a Helium based breathing mixture (max. of 20% helium content).
