If you’re into technical diving then you know that to extend your depth range you need to use trimix – a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen. The Tec Trimix 65 course introduces you to using trimix down to a maximum depth of 65 metres. There are advantages to using three gases, but you need to know how to do it right. Earning the Tec Trimix 65 certification makes deeper exploration a reality.
You’re qualified to enroll in the Tec Trimix 65 course, if you:
- Are a PADI Tec 50 diver
- Have a minimum of 100 logged dives
- Are at least 18 years old
- Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months
Tec Trimix 65 course topics include:
- Trimix diving depth ranges
- Exposure planning

- Argon inflation systems
- Handling three or four decompression cylinders
- Decompression models
- Emergency procedures

You’ll use full technical equipment and you may use a technical sidemount configuration, plus two stage/decompression cylinders. Your Tec Trimix Instructor may suggest other equipment.
Included in the price is hire of twinset and weights, the instructor, land transport to dive sites and certification card. You will need learning materials for the course, and the PADI Tec Trimix Diver Crew-Pak that includes a PADI Tec Trimix Diver Manual, which you can start reading right away. You also receive a deep stop calculation table, trimix decal and emergency procedures slate as part of your pack, and we can organize this for you (this is an additional cost).
