Discover Tec Diving

Technical Diver Training

So you want to become a technical diver, or at least you think you might but there are a few nagging questions in your head. How much will it cost me, how long will it take, what if…?

The PADI Discover Tec Diving lets you try technical diving equipment and procedures without the cost or commitment of doing a full technical training programme. You will get an overview of technical diving equipment, techniques and training costs and best of all you get to try it out by using some of the best technical diving equipment available in the pool.

You will need your basic scuba gear and you will try technical scuba diving equipment.

What will I do?

Where To?

Where can I go from here?

Once you have completed your PADI Discover Tec Diving session you will have an idea of the requirements to progress onto the actual Tec Diver training offered here at Aquasport. Your instructor will have given you a training schedule which will cover all you will need to embark on your technical diving future. The prerequiste training you will need before you can start on the PADI Tec 40 Diver is the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, PADI Enriched Air Diver and PADI Deep Diver Specialties.

Once you have completed five PADI specialties and your PADI Rescue Diver and have 50 logged dives you hold all the prerequisites for the PADI Master Scuba Diver certification. This is the highest non-professional rating in the PADI system of diver education.

Here at Aquasport all of our Instructors hold this level of recreational certification. We recommend that every diver takes this route regardless of their further ambitions as we see it as a commitment to education and a real achievement.

For those of you with deeper and longer expectations the PSA Inspiration Closed Circuit Rebreather training programmes may be what you are looking for.
