TEC TRIMIX INSTRUCTOR The outer edge of technical diving

The Tec Trimix Instructor course

Becoming a Tec Trimix Diver takes you to the outer edge of technical diving. Earning the Tec Trimix Instructor rating makes you the person who trains these extreme divers. It’s a respected tec diving instructor certification that few achieve. If you’ve got the experience and are up for the challenge, then it could be your next step. As a Tec Trimix Instructor you can teach the full range of deep open circuit tec diving courses, including Tec Trimix 65 and Tec Trimix Diver.

What will you learn?

You begin your training by reviewing the Tec Trimix course content and practical skills. Then, you complete multiple practice teaching scenarios in the classroom and in the water to ensure you know how to cover all the materials, organize skill practice and control open water dives.
