Intro: Tec Deep Instructor Training in Thailand

If you enjoy technical diving then why not make a career out of it? The PADI Tec Deep Instructor is permitted to teach a range of technical diver courses; from the Discover Tec Experience to Tec 40, Tec 45, Tec 50 to full Tec Deep Diver. Once you become a Tec Deep Instructor you will also be able to apply for further rating to teach popular technical dive course such as the ‘PADI Advanced Wreck Diver’. Simple Life has a great atmosphere and facilities for you to undertake your Tec Deep Instructor Training.

Tec Deep Instructor Course Requirements

You will need to be an experienced instructor to qualify for you for the PADI Tec Deep Instructor Rating. The requirements to complete the course are;

  • PADI MSDT Instructor
  • PADI Enriched Air Instructor
  • PADI Deep Diver Instructor
  • PADI Tec 50 Diver (or equivalent)
  • 270 logged dives
  • Certified at least 10 PADI Enriched Air or Deep Divers
  • 25 stage decompression dives below 40 meters (dives included in your course, nitrox fills not included)
  • Assist on 2 PADI Tec Program (included in your course)
  • Complete The Tec Deep Instructor Standards Theory Practical Application Exam (included in your course)
  • Complete the peer waterskills review (included in your course)
  • Attend the DSAT Deep Instructor Course (included in your course)

Obviously you must be somewhere near these requirements before enrolment on the course, (unless you plan to spend an extended period here with us at Simple Life). If you do need to work towards some of the exit requirements not included in the Tec Deep Instructor course; then contact us and we’ll do our best to help you out. MSDT programs are run monthly here at Simple Life Divers and we do have a steady stream of Deep and Nitrox recreational courses running though the shop.

What you’ll do during your Tec Deep Instructor Course

During your Tec Deep Instructor course you will assist under one of our experienced technical dive instructors while they teach real life students. During classroom time you will be able to pick up on teaching techniques, brush up on knowledge yourself or study towards your exams. You will assist during training dives, demonstrate skills such as air sharing and develop student diver control. During your assists you will be expected to demonstrate and promote prudent safe technical diver behaviour.

Like most of our enrolling candidates you will probably need to get your decompression dive experience up. No problem, you can join our team of technical divers here at Simple Life who all enjoy a chance to get their bottom time up.

When you are ready, we will enroll you in a mini technical IDC; in which you will be sit the exams, be evaluated on your class room lectures, confined water presentations and open water presentations, very much like you did on your Open Water Instructor IDC.

Once reaching your exit requirement for the Tech Deep Instructor rating we can submit your application to PADI. Then youwill be able begin your adventure into teaching technical diving yourself.
