Technical Diving is diving other than conventional commercial or research diving that takes divers beyond recreational diving limits. It is further defined as and includes one or more of the following: diving beyond 40 metres/130 feet, required stage decompression, diving in an overhead environment beyond 40 linear metres/130 feet of the surface, accelerated decompression, and/or the use of variable gas mixtures during the dive.
The PADI TecRec Discover Technical diving course allows you to try Technical Diving by discovering the technical equipment and differing diving techniques used for decompression diving. During the course you will have the time to familiarize and acquaint yourself with the set of full technical equipment and you will take a quick theory session during which the relevant diving techniques and practices will be explained and go for a fun dive in a confined or limited open water environment not deeper than 10m. Should all the performance requirements are met then Discover Tec program may be contributed to the beginning of the PADI TecRec diving courses.
