Is the Master Scuba Diver - Tec Package for me..?

With so many divers thinking of moving in a more technical direction from an early stage the Master Scuba Diver - Tec Package was created. This training package consists of 5 PADI specialty diver courses (all will be conducted by a DSAT Instructor) they are designed to target the core skills and abilities needed to make a competent entry level Technical Diver and will give you the best possible preparation before signing onto any technical diver courses.

Technical diving requires a diver to develop a number of fundamental techniques; many of these skills can be developed at an early stage in a diver’s development. Please remember, technical diving is not a logical progression for every diver, however if you are interested then this is the best introduction you can have. I will guarantee that after doing this unique training package you will be more than ready for what's to come in the DSAT Tec Deep Course.

How does everyone view a Master Scuba Diver..?

With the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating, you've reached the highest non professional level in the PADI System of diver education. It means that you’ve acquired significant training and experience in a variety of dive environments.

What are the Specialty Courses and is there an order they must be done in..? 

  1. Enriched Air Diver (Classroom based - all other courses below to be done using Enriched Air, Nitrox)
  2. Peak Performance Buoyancy for Twinset Divers (2 Dives)
  3. Multi-Level Diver (2 Dives)
  4. Deep Diver (3 Dives)
  5. PADI Distinctive Tec Basics (2 Pool & 2 Open Water Dives)

If I already have some of the Specialties can I still join onto the program..?

Yes, please contact for a new package price - however you might want to still join others doing some parts again, if its been a while since you have used your Enriched Air tables or never done a Peak Performance Buoyancy Course in a Twinset, see below how each course above will help with you becoming a Technical Diver. 

Why are the Courses in this (MSD) Tec Package so special..?

See below for each of the specialty courses listed above, the highlights showing how each will be adapted for your technical diving preparation.

  • Enriched Air Diver - This Course is needed to start any technical diving course so it had to be first. After this course you will be doing the 4 remaining using Enriched Air this will involve planning each dive including what nitrox mix then analyzing each cylinder before each dive. (more information on Gas Blending Courses)
  • (PPB) for Twinset Divers - This involves actually using a Twinset to complete the course, it takes a lot of practice to become comfortable in a twinset - it will shorten your learning curve and during the 2 dives I will give you some of the tips and tricks I have acquired over the years.
  • Multi-Level Diver - Now are buoyancy is getting there and we are already planning maximum depths for are enriched air use, we will continue a level further and see how long we can stay at different dive depths (levels) and the minutes it takes us to descend and ascend between them.
  • Deep Diver - This is another prerequisite needed to start the Tec Deep Diver Course. Now we have seen the importance of being on time we can take are skills a step further and explore the 30-40 metre range.

Want to know more about how your cylinders weight changes during a dive..? Video has information on what effects the weight change and has tests showing cylinders at different air pressures during dives in salt and fresh water. It displays whether they have Negative, Neutral or Positive Buoyancy. More details found at
