PADI TEC 60 CCR
The PADI Tec 60 CCR Diver is similar to other agencies "Normoxic Trimix" training. During the course you will learn more in-depth about dive planning and using different Trimix gas mixes. The lowest oxygen content gas on this course is 16% which is considered normoxic on CCR. Instead of one bail out cylinder as you learned on PADI Tec 40 CCR course, you will use now two-stage tanks. With this course, the number of decompression levels or time is not limited anymore.
Tec 60 CCR Diver is the second level of technical diving training with Type T CCRs. By completing the this course, you extend your CCR diving adventures down to a maximum depth of 60 metres/200 feet. You learn to complete multiple decompression stops, manage life-support problems and dive with trimix/heliox as a diluent. It’s a considerable challenge, but if you’re serious about being a tec CCR diver, then this course is your next step.
PADI TEC 60 CCR
What scuba gear will you use?
You’ll use standard tec diving equipment along with the gear you used for your PADI Tec 40 CCR Diver course, with the addition of a spare mask and a primary and backup CCR dive computer with open-circuit bailout capability. You’ll definitely want CCR and bailout decompression software or your PC, tablet or smartphone.
This course is accompanied by a service and repair workshop for in-field problem solving and maintenance; setup and maintenance of the unit, loop volume management, calibration of electronics, emergency procedures, buoyancy control, CNS tracking.
Qualifier & Crossover
After certification as a PADI Tec 60 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.
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.
