Tech Diver Level 1 $599- Starting March 2007 

Call for details on the Tec Program- 817-652-3483

If you're interested in technical diving, but haven't yet met the prerequisites for the DSAT Tec Deep Diver course, you can consider enrolling in the DSAT Apprentice Tec Diver course. It is also a subcourse of the full DSAT Tec Deep Diver course. You'll learn to make gas switch, extended no-decompression dives using air and enriched air to 130 feet. You'll also prepare for and respond to foreseeable technical diving emergencies. Since it's part of the Tec Deep Diver course, you DSAT Apprentice Tec Dive course training credits toward the DSAT Tec Deep Diver course. 

Pre-requisites:

  • PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • PADI Enriched Air Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • PADI Deep Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Have a minimum of 50 logged dives, of which at least 10 must be enriched air dives, 12 must be deeper than 60 feet and at least six must be deeper than 100 feet
  • Minimum age: 18 years old

Equipment Requirements:

  • Double cylinders (minimum 70 cf each, with larger preferred) with isolator manifold
  • Primary and secondary regulators, one with seven foot hose (approx.) for gas sharing, and one with SPG
  • Stage/decompression cylinders with regulator, SPG, mounting hardware and proper labeling/markings.
  • Backup decompression cylinders as appropriate and required for the environment
  • BCD and harness redundant buoyancy control is required (double bladder BCD or dry suit if suitable for weight of equipment worn)
  • Dive Computer (single gas, single gas enriched air, and/or multigas) and backup, or back up timer and depth gauge
  • Back up decompression information: back up computer, dive tables, etc.
  • Exposure suit appropriate for environment and dive duration. (If students will use dry suits, they should be trained/experienced with their use in recreational and technical diving prior to using them for training.)

DSAT Gas Blender Course  $139

More people are diving with enriched air and this means the demand for enriched air fills is also increasing. However, there needs to be someone qualified to administer these fills to meet this demand. This is where the DSAT Gas Blender course comes in. It can result in one of two certifications: DSAT Gas Blender or DSAT Trimix Blender. The DSAT Gas Blender course will train you as a qualified gas blender, allowing you to provide gas mixes to appropriately certified consumers. You'll learn the physical properties of oxygen, its associated hazards, handling requirements and what cleaning equipment is necessary. Finally, you will learn the five methods of obtaining the desired enriched air nitrox mix and the various methods used to obtain proper helium mixes.

Pre-requisites:

  • PADI Enriched Air Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Minimum age: 18 years old

DSAT Tec Trimix Diver $950 (mixes are extra)

For the extreme diver ready to further explore the world of technical deep diving, the gas of choice is trimix. The DSAT Tec Trimix Diver course takes you to the outer edges of technical deep diving, opening the door to pristine dive sites few divers if any ever see. The DSAT Tec Trimix Diver course is intended to extend the depth range available to technical divers trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 165 feet in open water. The DSAT Tec Trimix Diver course is intended for technical divers certified as DSAT Tec Deep Divers (or qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends their depth range capabilities by training them in the use of trimix (helium, oxygen and nitrogen).

Pre-requisites:

  • PADI Rescue Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Certified as a DSAT Tec Deep Diver or have a qualifying certification in deep decompression diving using air/enriched air from another organization*.
