TECREC 40 PADI

The PADI TecRec 40 course is available at our Technical Diving Centre in Phuket. This is the first level in the series of TecRec courses, introducing the diver to new equipment, limited decompression and the limits of recreational diving.

The TecRec 40 diving program is an entry level technical dive course which bridges the gap between recreational diving and full technical deep decompression diving. Certified Tec 40 divers are qualified to make limited decompression dives using equipment that is marginally more extensive than that used in mainstream recreational diving. The next level up will be the TecRec 45 or Maybe a Sidemount Course.
