CCRs are the ideal tool for many technical (tec) diving missions. By becoming a Tec 60 CCR Instructor, you'll be able to train tec divers to extend their CCR diving adventures down to 60 metres/200 feet. In the Tec 60 CCR Instructor course, you'll learn to guide divers through multiple decompression stops using trimix/heliox as a diluent. It's the next step after you've gained experience as a Tec 60 CCR Diver and Tec 40 CCR Instructor.
To enroll in a Tec 60 CCR Instructor course, you must:
- Be a Tec 40 CCR Instructor on the specific Type T CCR to be used in the course
- Be a Tec 60 CCR Diver on the specific Type T CCR to be used in the course
- Have a minimum of 300 logged dives, with at least 150 dives and 150 hours on Type T CCRs, with at least 120 dives and 120 hours on the specific Type T CCR to be used in the course, of which 25 dives must be using trimix/heliox deeper than 40 metres/130 feet
- Have taught at least one complete Tec 40 CCR Diver course and issued at least one Tec 40 CCR Diver certification
- Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months
- Meet any additional manufacturer requirements
Building on your Tec 40 CCR Instructor course, you'll learn how to evaluate diver readiness for the challenge and potential risks of diving a Type T CCR to 60 metres/200 feet. During practical application sessions and open water dives, you'll hone your extended range CCR diving skills and learn how to organize and control dives with multiple decompression stops using trimix/heliox as a diluent. The focus is on the specific Type T CCR you're using, but you can qualify on additional Type T CCRs through a shorter additional unit qualifying program.
