About The Course

If you’ve researched into technical diving, you will discover that technical divers always wear more than one tank. PADI Sidemount is growing in popularity year on year. Being able to configure multiple cylinders is a new skill for recreational divers and a step towards technical diving. The Tec Sidemount Diver course is the first step into the tec world.

Our instructor will discuss how to integrate this course with the Tec 40, Tec 45 or Tec 50 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.
