PADI TecRec Instructors provide the most comprehensive technical instruction available. Tec Trimix divers explore the outer edges of technical deep diving. If you are both a PADI Tec Deep Instructor (or you can become one in conjunction with this course) and Tec Trimix Diver (or you can become one in conjunction with this course), then the PADI Trimix Instructor training is ideal for you. The TecRec Trimix Instructor incorporates instructional philosophies and course goals that directly address the demanding and challenging nature of technical diving with helium gas mixes.  We can offer the PADI Trimix Instructor course in both backmount and sidemount configurations.

For PADI Instructors with no technical experience, we can offer complete packages that train you as Tec Deep and Trimix diver whilst simultaneously conducting both levels in our PADI TecRec Instructor course. Then we can have you assist on subsequent Tec courses that we are running so you get additional tec dives and class assist experience (necessary for your Instructor application. We can also offer a package of technical dives to credit towards the numbers needed at each level for the PADI Tec Deep Instructor and PADI Trimix Instructor.  Please contact us if you are interested in a Tec diving internship.

How long will it take?

The duration of the course depends on your previous experience, whether you’re already a Tec Trimix Diver, Trimix Instructor from another organization, or Trimix Diver from another organization. It could last from a few days to a few weeks.


This course will prepare you to teach the PADI Tec Trimix diver course, one of the highest instructional ratings in the PADI system of diver education and a much sought after and distinguished rating. The PADI Trimix Instructor course will review your understanding of the academic knowledge presented in both ‘Tec Trimix Diver’ courses to 100% mastery and hone your teaching skills with technical academic teaching presentations and open water teaching presentations. Our in-house PADI Trimix Instructor trainer will guide you through all the materials for the program and the standards and procedures for conducting the course. As an Instructor candidate, you will demonstrate role model performance of several training dives from the ‘Trimix diver’ course, complete practical applications under supervision to ensure total understanding of the subject matter of the Trimix diver course, and build upon the skills and knowledge that you learned on the PADI Tec Deep Instructor course. The final part of the Instructor training course involves you evaluating your peer students-in-training and passing an Instructor theory and standards exam.
