Find a new and different way to configure your cylinders with the PADISidemount Diver course. Sidemount diving offers:
Because you are able to move the cylinder from your back to your side, it instantly takes the pressure off of your back and gives you more flexibility to move and enjoy your dive. Plus, you don’t have to walk to the dive site with the cylinders on your back. You can enter the water and clip them on and go.
The course is strictly non-decompression and is designed for any diver interested in learning to dive with sidemount configuration. This course is not brand specific and any sidemount unit can be used to teach this course. Maximum depth is 40 meters or within the limit of the students current certification, whichever is shallower.
This course can be combined with a TecRec 40-45-50 course or TecRecTrimix course where sidemount configuration is used instead of backmount. Any TecRec programs conducted in sidemount are to be conducted according to the standardized PADI TecRec outline.
Upon successful completion of the PADI Recreational Sidemount course, graduates may engage in sidemount diving activities with maximum two (2) independent tanks without direct supervision provided the following limits are adhered to: Planned dives do not exceed diver’s current certification level.
