Tec 100 CCR Diver is the ultimate PADI Tec CCR rating. This training is significantly more challenging than the Tec 60 CCR Diver course because it includes the use of diluents and bailout gases that are hypoxic. You’ll learn to plan and make dives with hypoxic trimix/heliox using a Type T (technical) CCR to a maximum depth of 100 metres/330 feet while managing multiple bailout cylinders and completing multiple decompression stops. Very few extreme adventurers earn this rating. Will you be one of them?
To enroll in the Tec 100 CCR Diver course, you must:
Note that manufacturer requirements also may apply and qualifying
certifications from other diver training organization may be acceptable
– ask your Tec 100 CCR Instructor.
Going deeper than 60 metres/200 feet brings up a few key
considerations that you’ll focus on during this course, beyond what you
already know as a Tec 60 CCR Diver. During knowledge development, one
confined water dive and five open water dives, you’ll cover:
Your independent study begins by reading the PADI Tec 100 CCR Diver Manual. Visit your local PADI Dive Center or Resort
that offers PADI TecRec courses to pick up your manual and start
learning now. Also pull out the manufacturer’s literature for the Type T
CCR you’ll use during the course and carefully review it.
You’ll use standard tec diving equipment along with the gear you used for your PADI Tec 60 CCR Diver course, with the addition of at least two more bailout cylinders.
After certification as a PADI Tec 100 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.
Note that all CCRs used in PADI TecRec courses must be third party tested and manufacturers must ensure they meet a comprehensive list of requirements.
