AS a PADI Coach, using the PADI system, you I don't have my students buy everything at once. You need to take to a couple of things first, and see what you prefer before just starting the budget up and paying money (By the way in which, if you feel that you must do that, please contact me. I will help spent it). Let's talk about how to find yourself in Complex Diving without breaking start a fresh mortgage.
Several teaching organizations have an Introduction to Complex Diving class, or an action plan into Specialized Diving. PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) broke their Technical Fishing plan in to multiple phases. The very first 3 stages, you feel a technical diver and certify in the areas before you can Trimix or other specialized diving gas mixtures.
Which makes Tec40 a great area for somebody to start in Technical diving. Gear intelligent, you could be in a position to use the same gear that you're presently applying proper now. Tec40 requires that you have 2 separate breathing sources. This is accomplished by getting an "H" Valve on your present scuba cylinder (this enables you the capability to closed one source of air off while breathing from one other regulator).
Or you might hold yet another Deco or Pony bottle. NO, a Spare Air will not benefit this. I'd recommend at the very least a 40cuft tube as your extra bottle. There's the second breathing source. No necessity for doubles right here. You most likely will need to obtain an additional Malvan sea packages and yet another regulator collection up.
Different benefit here, if you choose to continue up with Tec Diving, you now have equipment ordered for future certifications. You have just distribute the cost of equipment out only a little bit.I do desire to caution you here: Make sure your BCD is capable of keeping the weight and extra equipment. If your BCD has plastic hooks and clips, it will not last under the strain of tec diving.
If your BCD is not effective at raising at the least 40 pounds, then it too will not suffice below tec diving. I have seen divers try to produce a current BCD function but due to the amount of gear they have on, their BCD bladder is filled to volume and when each goes to add more air it just purges out. Not just a secure way to be technical diving. If you are needing picking up still another BCD, you've a few different options to appear at.
First option, you realize that you're not planning to carry on to other tec diving courses. You are just planning to buy a BCD that will have a way to meet up the requirements of Tec40 diving. I would suggest that you get a BCD to generally meet one need. I am aware there are BCD's different which make these statements that you should use them with single and double tanks.
