Tec Sidemount Instructor


PADI Instructor Development Course Phuket

For technical divers, using a sidemount configuration is becoming more common and it certainly is convenient for traveling, especially to locations where backmount isn’t available. As a Tec Sidemount Instructor, you can teach the advantages of sidemount diving to tec divers or introduce scuba divers to tec diving with the Tec Sidemount Diver course.

  • Be a renewed PADI Instructor

Over a minimum of five days, but usually more like seven, the IDC teaches you to conduct all PADI core courses.

  • Be a PADI Tec Instructor or higher rating
  • Be a PADI Tec Sidemount Diver
  • Have logged at least 20 technical sidemount dives including 10 with three or more cylinders

What Will You Learn?

Your Tec Sidemount Instructor Trainer will make sure you’re ready to teach the course and also provide ideas for organizing and marketing your tec sidemount courses.
