Advance your dive career as a PADI Tec Deep and Trimix Instructor
For PADI Instructors (or PADI Divemasters also taking their Instructor training with us) we can customize a training program that can qualify you as a PADI Tec 50 or Trimix diver. After certification we can then allow you to intern in our facility building up your technical diving experience with a package of tec dives, having you assist with tec diver training and enrolled in our PADI Tec Deep and Trimix Instructor courses. So you can step into the realm of technical diving with our experienced staff and one of the most awarded, credible and established PADI Career Development Centers in the Americas to develop your technical diving career.
We can schedule the diver level training at anytime, but to make your time more efficient we recommend aligning the training close to our scheduled Tec Instructor programs.

To also be certified as a Tec Deep Instructor you will need to;
Assist on 1 component from the Tec 45 or 50 course (additional cost of $350 and this can be arranged with us also)
Then have 25 deco dives beyond 130ft in recreational technical equipment (not commercial dives and can occur as a post-requisite)
Have certified a combination of 10 Nitrox/Deep specialty certifications (can occur as a post requisite)
To also be certified as a Trimix Instructor you will need to;
Have 50 deco dives beyond 130ft in recreational technical equipment, 30 of which must be beyond 40 meters/130 feet on Trimix, and 10 beyond 50 meters/165 feet on Trimix (not commercial dives and can occur as a post-requisite)
Assist on 2 dives from the Trimix 90 course (additional cost of $500 and this can be arranged with us also)
Additional tec dives needed are priced at $85 southside/$110 northside plus extra for O2/Helium ($0.30 per cf O2 and $1.50 per cf He), if you have all your own tec gear we can deduct $25 dive. However if you plan to train through to Instructor we could offer a special package rate on the boat dives with our internship package rate below.
You’ll also need insurance that covers you for technical diving, we recommend you go through DAN for this.
So an approximate package price to train from zero tec experience through to PADI Tec Deep Instructor, including diver and Instructor level courses, audits, package of dives, gases and all materials/PADI fees is approximately $4800 (savings of over $1100 on individual dive rates). Similar training packages to PADI Tec Trimix Instructor are approximately $11700 (savings of over $2200 on individual dive rates).
