The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program.

 You’ll extend your depth limit to 45 metres/145 feet and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder. It puts you in a complete tec diving rig, which can be either backmount or sidemount. You’ll also make accelerated decompression dives using EANx or pure oxygen. 

This is a course where you’ll rise to the challenge and make the commitment to become a technical diver.
