The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You will extend your depth limit to 45 meters / 145 feet, and learn to plan and perform repetitive decompression dives using a single stage / decompression tank. You will use the complete technical equipment, which can be in “backmount” configuration. Plus, using enriched air or pure oxygen, you will perform accelerated decompression dives. This is a challenging course, during which you will make a serious effort to become a technical diver.
