The Side mount course is relatively new yet extremely popular showing you how to configure scuba equipment different and handle more than one cylinder. side mount diving is a scuba equipment configuration which has diving cylinders mounted alongside the diver, below the shoulders and along the hips, instead of on the back of the diver as per regular recreational scuba diving.
Side mount diving is becoming increasingly popular specialty training for recreational diving, with several diver certification agencies offering recreational and technical level side mount ivingg programs. The Open Water certification is the minimum diver level required to participate in the side mount diving course.
Tec 40 is the entry point into the technical range and provides a transition from recreational to tech. As a Tec 40 diver you will be qualified to complete up to 10 minutes of non-accelerated decompression while breathing from one additional deco cylinder of up to EANx50 (Depth is limited to 40m). The Advanced Open Water certification is the pre-requisite for the Tec 40 course.
