PADI Tec 65
If you want to explore depths beyond 50 meters the PADI Tec 65 course expands on the skills you have already mastered as a certified technical diver during you Tec Deep Diver course and applies a new gas mix of Helium, Nitrogen & Oxygen (Trimix).
Diving deep raises a number of issues. Nitrogen narcosis, Maxiaximim PPo2 of Oxygen and gas density being among a few. This is where breathing Trimix can help us.Helium is less narcotic and a very light gas.On this course you learn about selecting the right blend of gasses to safely make deeper dives. There are of course some downsides as well that you will learn how to manage.
The PADI Tec 65 course is designed for divers already certified and experienced in technical deep decompression diving who want to expand on their skills to reach deeper depths. The course will allow you to extend your bottom times to a maximum of 65 meters using Trimix and 2 decompression gasses.
With this course you will learn to extend your depth range to dive to a maximum depth of 65 meters. On successful completion you will qualify to make multi-stop decompression dives on Trimix with an oxygen content of 18% or more and employ Enriched Air and oxygen for accelerated decompression
PADI Tec Trimix 65 allows you to extend your depth beyond the limits of what is possible on air or nitrox. Whilst this is a huge benefit for those wanting to explore the depths it is vital that you know how to do it properly as diving trimix comes with its own unique dangers.
You will learn:
– Applicable depth ranges
– Trimix exposure planning
– How to selet the correct mixture
– Argon inflation
– How to handle 3 or 4 deco cylinders
– Decompression models
– Emergency procedures
– Decompression software and multi gas computers
