The third part of our full PADI Tec Deep Diver course is PADI Tec 50.
As a Tec 50 diver, you show that you’ve developed competency as a tec diver and have the skills to dive to a maximum of 50 metres. You know how to make extended, accelerated decompression stops using up to two gases.
It’s not easy to reach this level and earning your PADI Tec 50 certification opens the door to deeper diving expeditions.

What will I do?
A primary focus of this course is mission planning and execution.
The PADI Tec 50 course you will make actual decompression dives as deep as 50 metres, use enriched air nitrox and/or oxygen for decompression, use desk top decompression software to create custom dive tables and plan your dives and qualify to make technical decompression dives independently.
You also learn more about handling emergencies and how to think like a technical diver.
If you’re into technical diving then you know that to extend your depth range you need to use trimix – a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen. Take a look at our Tec Trimix 65 course.
