TECH SIDEMOUNT COURSE
PADI TEC SIDEMOUNT COURSE – 4 DAYS/5 DIVES – IDR 7,000,000
TDI TECH SIDEMOUNT COURSE – 4 DAYS/4+ DIVES – IDR 6,750,000*
PADI’s Tec Sidemount course offers the same benefits as the Sidemount Diver course but gives you the opportunity to dive with up to four cylinders for extended dive times and depths.
PADI TEC Sidemount Prerequisites:
- Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
- Have logged 30 or more dives
- Be at least 18 years old
- Certification as PADI Enriched Air Diver is recommended
*TDI does not have a separate Tech Sidemount Course as such, but the Sidemount course trains divers to their existing level of qualification, which means if you are already a technical diver, you will learn to use Sidemount equipment for technical dives.
Both Tec Sidemount Diver courses are a great way to start with technical diving because the skills you learn in this course will train you to handle multiple cylinders on a single dive.
You can combine what you learn in the Tec Sidemount Diver course with other technical diving courses that you take, or certifications you’ve already earned, to take advantage of sidemount’s cylinder configuration and handling.
