PADI Tec Sidemount Diver Description

Who should take this course?

If you’ve looked into technical diving, you realize that tec divers always wear more than one tank. Sidemount is an increasingly popular way to configure multiple cylinders for technical diving. You can enter the world of tec diving with the Tec Sidemount Diver course and apply what you learn to other TecRec courses. Your instructor may offer to integrate this course with the PADI Tec 40 Diver,  PADI Tec 45 Diver or PADI Tec 50 Diver courses.

If you’re a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, at least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives, you qualify to enroll in a Tec Sidemount Diver course. It’s recommended that you also have a PADI Enriched Air Diver certification.

Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply – ask your Tec Sidemount Instructor.

What will you learn?

You’ll learn about the advantages of diving with a sidemount configuration and how to set up a tec sidemount harness. You’ll get hands-on training during one confined water session and four open water dives where you’ll start with two tanks and add at least two more, maybe even getting to six sidemounted cylinders.

How can you start learning now?

Get the PADI Sidemount Diver and Tec Sidemount Diver Manual from Underwater Vision and start studying immediately. If you have a recreational sidemount diver certification, you’ll focus on Chapters Two and Three, if not, you'll read the entire manual.
