Sidemount Instructor

Sidemount is one of the cool new specialty courses that has really become popular in the last few years and is still growing rapidly. It looks natural, creates natural buoyancy and provides redundancy creating a lot of interest from divers new and experienced.

There is a lot of demand for these courses so therefore there is a lot of demand for Sidemount diving Instructors. Becoming a sidemount diving instructor is relatively easy however proper training is essential. Already there is a growing number of instructors out there teaching this course badly.

The proper equipment is essential, proper sidemount tanks configured correctly makes all the difference. Mastering the skills required to be a good sidemount diver and instructor will make all the difference for you future students. Take time to choose your sidemount Instructor Trainer and maybe even go for a sidemount dive with them to see what they look like in the water.

Kiwidiver was one of the first PADI 5 Star Dive Centers in Phuket to get into Sidemount diving and invested heavily into ensuring we have proper sidemount equipment, dedicated sidemount cylinders with left hand and right hand valves. We have both S80 sidemount cylinders and S40 sidemount cylinders and have a choice of Hollis SMS50 or SMS100 Sidemount wings.

Tec Sidemount Instructor

Nine out of ten new technical diving students are choosing to dive tec sidemount.

The TecRec Tec Sidemount Diver course develops the base equipment-related motor skills and underlying knowledge for the use of sidemount in technical diving.

Developed for maximum flexibility, the Tec Sidemount Diver course addresses a wide range of divers. As a Tec Sidemount Instructor, with this course you will be able to offer relevant training to those with neither tec nor sidemount experience who want to use sidemount as they enter tec diving, those who are already experienced backmount open-circuit tec divers and want to switch to sidemount, and those in between.

The Tec Sidemount Diver course goes well beyond the needs of recreational divers. Technical diving has inherent risks and increased complexity and is not for everyone. Becoming a Technical Diving Instructor takes time and practice and Tec Sidemount is a technical Diving program. Are you ready to make the commitment?
