Learn to plan and dive using a diluent air and air "bailout" gas, or enriched air (EANx), with a Type T (technical) closed circuit (CCR) rebreather, up to a maximum of 40 meters / 130 feet and a single decompression stop of 10 minutes.
The Tec 40 CCR Diver is the first level of technical diving training with Type T CCR, which includes a range of electronic CCR (eCCR) and manual CCR (mCCR). The Tec 40 CCR Diver introduces student divers to diagnosing problems that could expose them to risk, to return to the sequence necessary to complete the dive - when possible, and to observe precise mandatory decompression limits.
This training is considerably more challenging than recreational rebreather diving, as divers learn to be both tec divers and technical CCR diving.

Possess PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, PADI Enriched Air Diver, PADI Deep Diver certifications (or have experience of more than 10 dives at 30 meters / 100 feet) and have logged at least 30 dives with specific experience requirements.
Prior to Training Dive Five, student divers must be certified as PADI Rescue Divers
Prior to certification, student divers must have logged 50 dives.
There are conditions for other qualifying certifications.
Be at least 18 years old

What is a closed circuit rebreather?
Closed circuit rebreathers are self-contained breathing apparatus that reuse the gas you exhale: this is the main difference between CCRs and open circuit self-contained breathing apparatus.
All CCRs used in PADI TecRec CCR courses must be third-party tested, their manufacturers must ensure they meet a comprehensive list of requirements and register them with PADI.

The Tec 40 CCR Qualifier program
Due to the differences between the various CCRs, divers qualify for each CCR.However, once the qualification is obtained, if you wish to learn to dive with another Type T CCR, you do not need to repeat the entire course. The Tec 40 CCR Qualifier focuses on the theoretical / practical knowledge needed by divers to transition from one Type T CCR to another.

Some information on Closed Circuit Rebreathers
Technical diving has been revolutionized by the development, availability and reliability of Closed Circuit Rebreathers: CCRs offer numerous advantages to the technical diver, including reduced gas consumption, optimal EANx mixtures for decompression and a much wider range of solutions for equipment problems. Consequently, CCRs allow the technical diver a potential increase in the time spent underwater - more time through gas logistics to a technical diver using an open circuit, and more time available to find solutions to diving problems. gas management. To reach their milestones, as time is critical and the resources available are not infinite, divers looking to push the boundaries of recreational diving can now choose PADI Technical CCR training.
