Tec 60 CCR Diver is an intermediate technical Closed-Circuit Rebreather (CCR) diver program where you'll learn to use life-support equipment in completing dives outside the recreational and air diluent envelope.
You will learn to plan and make dives using trimix/ heliox (minimum 16% oxygen) as a diluent using a Type T CCR to a maximum depth of 60 meters/ 200 feet and complete multiple decompression stops while carrying adequate bailout gas for the dive.
Tec 60 CCR Diver is the second level of training that addresses technical diving with Type T CCRs, which include a range of electronic CCRs (eCCRs) and manual CCRs (mCCRs). Tec 60 CCR develops the understanding and skills for diagnosing life-support problems while using trimix/ heliox to complete a technical dive with its necessary decompression obligations.
You will complete one confined water dive and six open water dives. Building on the technical diving knowledge and skills you acquired in the Tec 40 CCR course.
You will cover new topics such as:
After qualifying as a PADI Tec 60 CCR Diver, you'll need to qualify if you want to use a different Type T CCR model because procedures vary with each model. However, you don't need to repeat the entire course. Just take a PADI Tec CCR Qualifier program that focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to use a different Type T CCR model.
