Revised PADI-DSAT Tec Rec / Tec Deep / Tec Trimix Course Structure & Flowchart

Posted on 08/21/09 No Comments

As described earlier here, here and here, PADI’s DSAT technical diving division is overhauling the Tec Rec program, chopping up the Tec Deep and Tec Trimix courses into smaller, easier to digest pieces.

The Tec Deep course will be broken into three parts, called “Tec 40,” “Tec 45″ and “Tec 50,” signifying the depth in meters students will be certified to dive. The current Tec Trimix course will be similarly broken into two parts, dubbed “Trimix 65″ and “Trimix 75.”

PADI announced earlier this week that the new courses will rollout Sept. 1. Today it released the flowchart below, showing the route to becoming a Tec Rec diver. The chart will appear on the PADI website next month.


More details are allegedly coming next week, so stay tuned.
