The PADI TecRec Tec 45 is the second course in the series of PADI’s TecRec courses. It builds upon the knowledge and skills earned in the Tec 40 course and introduces you to diving at depths beyond the limits of recreational diving. Dealing with increased oxygen exposures, planning dives with accelerated decompression and handling greater decompression requirements are part of this course.
This course qualifies you to perform stage decompression dives to a maximum depth of 45m / 145ft using one decompression gas up to pure oxygen for either conservatism or accelerated decompression and it is a prerequisite to continue training on to the PADI TecRec Tec 50 course
To enroll in the Tec 45 course you need to meet the following requirements:
Be at least 18 years old
Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent
