PADI Tec Trimix 65

Going down to 65 m takes a while

This course opens up the advantages of Trimix to the diver, and divers are qualified to make multi-stop decompression dives that employ EANx and oxygen for accelerated decompression, and any Trimix with an oxygen content of 18% or more.
They can dive to a maximum depth of 65 metres.

What do you need to start ?
You must:
• Be a PADI Rescue Diver or equivalent and having proof of CPR and first aid training with the previous
   two years.
• Be certified as a Tec 50 or equivalent
• Be at least 18 years old
• Have logged at least 100 dives
• Have a medical form signed by your physician

What will you do during Your PADI Tec Trimix 65 course?
The PADI Tec Trimix 65 course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres.

This course is for Tec 50 divers or equivalent. The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use Trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen).



You will:
• Plan and execute at least five Trimix decompression
   dives using various Trimix blends
• Use decompression software to create custom dive
   tables and dive plans
• Make training dives as deep as 65 metres
There is some really cool stuff to see

The Scuba Gear You'll Use
