PADI Tec Gas Blender

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is the most popular specialty in recreational diving, and as such more and more people are diving with enriched air.

This means the demand for enriched air fills is also increasing.

However, there needs to be someone qualified to produce these fills to meet this demand. This is where the PADI TecRec Gas Blender course comes in.

The PADI TecRec Gas Blender course will train you to blend gas mixes for appropriately certified recreational and technical divers using enriched air. For those with the interest and requirement, the PADI TecRec Gas Blender Course can also cover the use of Trimix blends using Helium, used in deep exploration diving.

You'll learn the physical properties of oxygen and helium, their associated hazards, handling requirements and what equipment cleaning 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.

The information you'll learn during the PADI TecRec Gas Blender course is invaluable for the dive professional, and we strongly recommend that all Enriched Air Instructors gain Gas Blender qualifications.
