I completed the Tec 40 course in January 2014 and would highly recommend the course as taught by Craig Weger. While the audience seems to consist of instructors and divemasters, both the Tec Basics and Tec 40 course are well worth considering for the interested recreational diver.
Why would you want to do the Tec 40 course itself? The Tec 40 course enables you to dive to 40m and use up to 50% nitrox with 10 minutes of decompression in a dive. You develop propulsion and buoyancy skills that are without over an order of magnitude different from pure recreational diving.
The course itself is intense and holds participants to a high standard. Drills for example are practised while attempting to maintain neutral buoyancy from the get go. Craig’s pre dive briefings and underwater exposition are first rate. Post dive debriefs are invariably thorough and give you feedback on all the points you want to work on for the next dive. All of this is conducted with a great attitude and emphasis on learning.
Why Tec at Bans? At its core Tec diving is about exploring deeper into an unfamiliar environment with a strong emphasis on safety procedures at its core. This requires the right human factors and well maintained equipment. The Tec team at Bans come from engineering backgrounds and really understand how and why dive-gear works. Walking around the workshop it is also evident that a process of total quality pervades.
In short, you’ll get a ton from training with this first rate team.
