TDI Technical Sidemount Diver

Portfolio Description

TDI Technical Sidemount Diver

Sidemount diving introduces divers to a different way of mounting tanks, allowing for greater balance, stability and flexibility underwater.

TDI’s Sidemount programme certifies divers to dive to the level of their already existing qualification. If you are an Advanced Open Water diver or equivalent, you would be training to 30 metres without decompression, for example. The course teaches students how to safely use side-mounted primary cylinders as an alternative to the traditional back-mounted method. This course takes students through the specific techniques, planning procedures and skills that set side-mounted cylinder diving apart from the traditional back-mounted method.

If you are already a technical diver and wish to transfer your skills from backmount, we can tailor the course to suit your needs.
