PADI Tec 40 Diver

Horizon Divers – Dive Courses
Course Description

The first step to going beyond the recreational diving limits. TEC 40 divers learn the basics of decompression diving and accelerate their decompression with higher mixes of Oxygen. Upon completion divers are trained to a maximum depth of 40m (130’), using two gas mixes up to 50% Oxygen, with a max decompression of 10 minutes. Divers can opt to take this course using a single tank, but doubles are recommended and encouraged.
