The next step to level up and get further.
So do you feel comfortable on your rebreather and gained not only the required hours and dives, but you feel good with your skills and knowledge? If your answer is “yes”, and you would like to progress to the next level and experience the real benefits of a rebreather over open circuit scuba, then the PADI Tec 60 CCR course is for You.
During the course you will learn more in depth about dive planning and using different Trimix gas mixes. The lowest oxygen content gas on this course is 16% which is considered non-hypoxic on CCR. Instead of one bail out cylinder as you learned on PADI Tec 40 CCR course, you will use now two stage tanks. On this course the number of decompression levels or time is not limited anymore.
To start this course you must be a Tec 40 CCR Diver or qualifying certification from another training organization, proof of 150 logged dives, with at least 25 dives and 50 hours experience diving the Type T CCR used in the course with an off-board bailout system following Tec 40 CCR diver principles. At least 10 of these dives must be deeper than 30 meters.
A medical approval signed by a physician is also required to start the course, so please bring one with you. If you need the form, you can download it here.
The course takes approximately five to six days. It will be conducted in class, pool or limited open water and open water. You will also participate in practical application sections to learn more about dive planning. There is also a theory exam which will be administered any time after your accomplished all the knowledge development sessions and practical applications, and you must score at least 80% on it.
The course fee is 60.000 Thai Baht. The price includes everything but the Manual and the certification fee which does not come with the manual as on other level courses. The price very depending on exchange rates, but is around 1.900 Baht for the certification and 2.800 Baht for the manual. It is strongly recommended to purchase the manual in advance, so you can prepare well at your own peace. If you wish, this materials can be shipped to you.
