What scuba gear will you use?

You’ll use standard tec diving equipment appropriate for the local environment, including your exposure suit, mask, fins and weight system. Snorkels are optional, but a collapsible snorkel can be carried in your pocket. You’ll also need a Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB) and reel, an audible surface signaling device, slate and a compass.

I will advise you about the Type T CCR you’ll learn to use and suggest a CCR dive computer with open-circuit bailout capability, offboard life support system, and oxygen analyzer along with other beneficial gear.


To secure your booking, a deposit fee 50% of the course price is asked either via bank transfer or PayPal (+5%). Additional bank fees are paid by the student. The rest of the course fee is paid when course starts. 


After your booking, you will receive PADI Tec 40 CCR Diver Manual for you to study. You’ll also get a TecRec Type T CCR Predive Checklist. I do all training sessions on the SF2 unit. You can also start studying the manufacturer’s literature.

Qualifier & Crossover

After certification as a PADI Tec 40 CCR Diver, you’ll need to qualify if you want to use a different Type T CCR model because procedures vary with each model. However, you don’t need to repeat the entire course. Just take a  program that focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to use a different Type T CCR model.
