PADI DSAT Tec Rec Diver Courses

The DSAT Tec Deep and Trimix Courses are broken down into an integrated sequence of several sub courses. You can complete these courses at any time, separately or all at once. This gives you learning efficiency, instructional integrity and schedule flexibility. Each level introduces you to new gear, planning and procedures appropriate to extend your diving limits.

The full PADI Deep Tec program can be done in one course, but also broken down into Technical diverTec 40, Tec 45 and Tec 50.

if you want to go beyond 50 meters, it time to add some helium and get into trimix! Again there are several courses: the intro Trimix 45 and Trimix 50, and then Trimix 65 and the full Trimix course which includes training dives as deep as 90 meters!
