Tec Gas Blender Course
With the number of technical divers on the rise, lots of scuba divers want enriched air and gas blends. This has led to increased demands for enriched air & trimix blenders. As such, the PADI Gas Blender course is becoming one of the most popular specialty courses.
The PADI Gas Blender course teaches you to blend enriched air nitrox and helium-blend gases using one or more blending methods. Being the blender is a key job at a busy PADI Dive Centre or Resort. Essentially, your work allows other divers to do what they love to do - scuba dive.
The PADI Gas Blender course will train you to become a qualified nitrox trimix blender, also known as gas blender. As such, you will be able to provide gas mixes to appropriately certified consumers.
The course includes three practical application sessions. There are no dives. During independent study and instructor-led review, you learn:
- About the advantages and disadvantages of different blending methodologies.
- To blend enriched air and trimix blends to within one percent of the target mix.
- About the potential hazards related to handling oxygen, as well as how to manage those risks.
- To demonstrate the steps for oxygen cleaning equipment, along with the requirements for oxygen service.

The Scuba Gear You Use
For this course you will not be needing any diving equipment but you will be diving into our classroom.
If you're a PADI Enriched Air Diver and are at least 18 years old, you can enroll in a Tec Gas Blender course.
Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organisations may apply - ask your PADI Gas Blender Instructor.
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.
If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
