Tec 50

Tec 50 Course


Your Tec 50 course will further develop your skills and mindset as a technical diver. You will complete decompression dives as deep as 50m and you will also learn to carry multiple stage cylinders, allowing you greater flexibility with the decompression gasses you select.


What will you learn?

During the course you will work as a team with your fellow students to plan and execute decompression dives, including using desk top planning software to create custom dive tables. Whilst in the water you will need to work closely with your team members, assisting each other but always remaining confident that you could deal with any emergency alone if the need arises. You will leave the course confident that you can plan and execute decompression dives independently, using Nitrox and oxygen as decompression gasses.


Where is the course held? 

We can use inland dive sites, dives in the sea or a mix of both to complete the Tec 50 course. Local inland sites offer easy entry and training locations for the skills portion of the course. Coastal locations such as Portland, Lyme Regis and Plymouth have excellent sites for you to take your final course dives on exciting local wrecks. If you fancy somewhere warmer why not enquire about taking your course on the wrecks around Malta & Gozo? We are happy to travel to you for the course, so please get in touch to discuss your options.


What Scuba Kit Will You Use?

You will use the same twinset configuration as you used on your Tec 45 course, but with the addition of a second stage cylinder.
