The future of deep tec diving belongs to the CCR (closed circuit rebreather) and the Tec 40 CCR course is where it all starts. If you’re interested in technical diving and want to dive a rebreather, the Tec 40 CCR course is your entry into the tec diving realm. This first level of training introduces you to Type T CCRs, which can be electronic CCRs (eCCRs) and manual CCRs (mCCRs). During the course, you focus on developing the discipline it takes to be a technical diver while learning the details of proper setup, predive checks, dive planning, failure and problem management and teamwork for CCR diving.

You’ll learn to make no stop or limited decompression dives (Max 10 minutes) using your Hollis Prism 2 CCR to a maximum depth of 40 metres/130 feet during eight training dives. You’ll also cover:

  • Basic CCR function

  • Tec equipment and CCR setup and checklists

  • Diving CCRs and handling potential problems

  • Deco software and open-circuit bailout requirements

  • Post-dive procedures and disassembly

  • Thinking like a Tec CCR diver

What personal gear is required for the course?
  • Hollis Prism 2 with BOV

  • Standard tec diving equipment appropriate for the local environment (Exposure suit, mask, fins and weight system)

  • Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB) and reel (minimum 100')

  • Audible surface signaling device

After certification as a PADI Tec 40 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.
