PADI Tec 65 Diver
The PADI Tec Trimix 65 course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already certified as a PADI Tec 50 diver or equivalent so they can plan and execute decompression dives beyond 165 feet. The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen).
Price (4-5 days)
The diver will be trained to dive to a maximum of 65 meters/210 feet using various trimix blends, enriched air and oxygen, using open circuit technical diving equipment and procedures required to manage the risks involved.
Training includes development in the cognitive and motor skills for technical trimix diving, as well as preparation and response for reasonably foreseeable emergencies that may occur in this type of technical diving. Decompression software will be used to create custom dive tables and dive plans.
