PADI Tec Trimix 65
This course opens up the advantages of trimix to the diver, and divers are qualified to make multi-stop decompression dives that employ EANx and oxygen for accelerated decompression, and any trimix with an oxygen content of 18% or more allowing the diver to dive to a maximum depth of 65 metres/210 feet.
Once you start diving with helium, it opens up a whole new world for you. Wrecks sitting beyond 50m now become accessible to you. Live-aboards to places like Truk Lagoon and the World War wrecks of the Gulf of Thailand now open up to you as a Tec 65 Trimix diver.
The PADI Tec Trimix 65 course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 meters /165 feet.
