TEC INSTRUCTOR Your entry into the tec diving world

The Tec Instructor course

Tec Instructor has a nice sound to it, especially if you’re a PADI Instructor interested in technical (tec) diving and ready to combine your interests. The Tec Instructor course is your entry into the tec diving world and your opportunity to join the PADI TecRec professional ranks. As a Tec Instructor, you’ll be qualified to conduct Discover Tec programs, teach the Tec 40 Course and assist a Tec Deep Instructor with Tec 45 Diver courses (which is a great way to gain experience).

What will you learn?

If you are not a certified tec diver, then your Tec Instructor course will include the entire Tec 40 and Tec 45 Diver course.

Part One of the course focuses on the knowledge and skills required for technical deep diving.

Part Two fine-tunes your ability to conduct knowledge development, practical application and open water teaching segments. You’ll also go over the philosophy, organization and marketing considerations for technical diver training.
