If you’ve looked into technical diving, you realise that tec divers always wear more than one tank. Sidemount is an increasingly popular way to configure multiple cylinders for technical diving and also recreational diving.
You can enter the world of technical 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 Tec 40, Tec 45 or Tec 50 courses.
This streamlined approach to diving works well for those who are cave diving, wreck diving & especially wreck penetration but also is favoured for those divers who may have back issues due to the where the weight is focused on the bodies frame…
All in all the Sidemount Course is awesome and broadens your diver capability in a way you can not understand until your certified.
