PADI TecRec Tec Deep Instructor 

If you are a PADI Instructor and wish to advance into technical diving then meet the challenge of teaching the PADI TecRec programs.

To qualify as a PADI Tec Deep Instructor you’ll need to attend a PADI Tec Deep Instructor course and audit either an actual or simulated Tec 45 or Tec 50 component. In our Tec Deep Instructor course you will also sit the theory and standards exams under the supervision of our PADI TecRec Instructor Trainer and save the time and expense of needing to do this at a PADI IE. As long as all other postrequisites have been met you’ll qualify to teach the PADI Tec Deep (40/45/50) and Tec programs, the most comprehensive and educationally valid in the dive industry.

In order to qualify as a PADI TecRec Tec Deep Instructor you will also need to meet the following post-course requisites

  • Be a renewed PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer or higher.

  • Be a PADI Enriched Air Instructor.

  • Be a PADI Deep Diver Specialty Instructor

  • Be a certified Tec Deep Diver or have an equivalent certification.

Additional Post Requisites: 

Have certified a total of 10 or more PADI Deep Divers and/or PADI Enriched Air Divers. Any combination of EANx/Deep Diver certifications is acceptable. For example, if the PADI Instructor has three EANx certifications and seven Deep Diver certifications, that meets the requirement.

If your still lacking the pre or post requisites that are necessary to qualify as an Instructor then we can customize a TecRec preparatory program that will help you meet the criteria with the most efficient use of time.
