Tec sidemount

Wearing more than one tank has become increasingly popular for technical diving. With the Tec Sidemount Diver course you can apply what you learn to other TecRec courses.


If you’ve looked into technical diving, you realize that tec divers always wear more than one tank. Sidemount is an increasingly popular way to configure multiple cylinders for technical diving. You can enter the world of tec diving with the ADIP Tec Sidemount Diver course and apply what you learn to other ADIP Technical diving courses. Your instructor may offer to integrate this course with many other ADIP Technical diving courses.


If you’re a ADIP 2* 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 ADIP Enriched Air Diver certification.



You’ll learn about the advantages of diving with a sidemount configuration and how to set up a tecsidemount harness. You’ll get hands-on training during one confined water session and four open water dives where you’ll start with two tanks and add at least two more, maybe even getting to six sidemounted cylinders.
