The Best Diving in Costa Rica

TEC 40


The PADI Tec 40 course is where you first cross the border of recreational scuba diving to technical diving. You gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your TEC diver training. You will first learn in your new skills and equipment configurations in shallow water before qualifying on a limited decompression dive to 40m/120ft. 

You also need to have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply – ask your PADI Tec Deep Instructor.

  • To enroll in the Tec 40 course, you must be:

    • A PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
    • A PADI Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 metres
    • A PADI Deep Diver with at least 10 dives to 30 metres
    • At least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives
