TECREC 50

The PADI TecRec 50 Course is available at our Technical Diving Centre in Phuket Thailand. This PADI Tec 50 program introduces divers to the first stages of full decompression and technical diving. Certified Tec 50 divers are qualified to make multi-stop decompression dives using air, EANx and oxygen up to two gases for accelerated decompression.

The Tec 45 diver comes to the course with a strong knowledge and skill base, the Tec 50 course extends these and leaves the diver confident with emphasis on mission planning and execution.
