PADI Tec Trimix 65 Diver
The PADI Tec Trimix 65 Diver is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres.
It will open up the advantages of trimix to the diver, and divers are qualified to make multi-stop decompression dives that employ EANx and oxygen for accelerated decompression and any trimix with an oxygen content of 18% or more.
They can dive to a maximum depth of 65 metres.
This course is for PADI Tec 50 Divers (or those holding a qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen).

Where can I go from here?
Once you have completed your PADI Tec Trimix 65 Diver then the obvious next step is onto the PADI Tec Trimix Diver. If you do not yet have the required number of dives then discuss this with your instructor and see if these can be combined with the club diving schedule and arrange for a time to complete these.
