PADI Tec Instructor Courses Thailand

Just as Technical Diving is not for everyone, becoming a technical instructor is not a decision to be taken lightly. You will be responsible for the training of technical divers in an unforgiving environment where cutting corners or taking shortcuts can have life-threatening results. Regardless of the agency, you choose to train with, research your Tec Instructor Trainer, invest time in your training and don’t take shortcuts on time or cost. If you are passionate about technical diving the rewards and additional career opportunities that come with becoming a technical diving instructor are well worth the effort.

The PADI Tec Instructor training program covers two levels Tec Instructor and Tec Deep Instructor, both of which have two parts. Part one focuses on developing and reviewing the knowledge and skills required for technical deep diving. Part two focuses on fine-tuning your tec diving skills to role model teaching levels and on teaching sessions for knowledge development and practical applications with training dives.

Training details & Considerations

To conduct all sub-courses in the PADI Tec Diver course, you must be a teaching status PADI Instructor who is certified as a DSAT Tec Deep Instructor. To conduct the Tec 40 course only, you must be a renewed, teaching status PADI Instructor who is certified as a DSAT Tec Instructor.

You may qualify by completing a DSAT Tec Instructor or DSAT Tec Deep Instructor Training course conducted by a PADI Course Director who is a DSAT Tec Deep Instructor Trainer like Kiwidiver’s Kevin Black.

When training to be a PADI Tec Instructor choosing the best trainer and the best facility should be your top priority. Nothing less than a PADI 5 star facility should be considered and nothing less than a PADI Course Director should be considered. You will already be a qualified Tec Diver so the Instructor level is not just about honing your skills to a professional level it is about how to teach technical courses using the PADI system.

About Technical Diving

By definition technical diving (tec diving) takes divers beyond the limits of recreational diving. Technical scuba diving is diving other than commercial or research diving that takes divers beyond recreational limits.

It is further defined as and includes one or more of the following: diving beyond 40 metres/130 feet, required stage decompression, diving in an overhead environment beyond 40 linear metres/130 linear feet, accelerated decompression, the use of variable gas mixtures during a dive, and/or the use of scuba technologies that require discipline, thought, training and attitude beyond that required by recreational divers.

Technical diving has inherent risks and increased complexity and is not for everyone. Becoming a Technical Diving Instructor takes time and practice.
