PADI Tec 50

The third part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program is the Tec 50 Diver course. As a Tec 50 diver, you show that you’ve developed competency as a tec diver and have the skills to safely dive to  50 metres/165 feet. You know how to plan extended, accelerated decompression stops using up to two different gases.


It’s not easy to reach this level and earning your Tec 50 certification opens the door to deeper diving expeditions and prepares you for the Trimix Diver course.
