What You Learn

The PADI Tec Trimix Diver course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres/165 feet. Diving with trimix is the outer edge of tec diving – the maximum depth for using this technology has yet to be defined.

This course is for PADI Tec 50 or PADI Tec Trimix 65 divers (or those holding a qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen).

You will

  • Plan and execute at least five trimix decompression dives using various trimix blends
  • Use decompression software to create custom dive tables and dive plans
  • Make training dives as deep as 75 metres/245 feet
