Sidemount Cave Course

In addition to the TDI Sidemount Diver course which is designed to teach techniques to be used in open water dive scenarios, this course option is meant for cave certified divers and includes also dives in overhead environment.

The TDI Sidemount Cave Diver Course not only teaches how to safely utilize side-mounted primary cylinders as an alternative to the traditional back-mounted method, it takes the student also through the specific techniques, planning procedures and skills that set side-mounted cylinder diving apart from the traditional back-mounted method.

We cover at least skills such as:

  • Equipment considerations
  • Gas management
  • Attaching cylinders
  • Trim and buoyancy
  • Different water entries
  • Limits

Course Stucture

Prerequisite: cave diver with me or cave diver trained according to standards of a recognized technical organization and at least one evaluation day with me, 18 years
Duration: if certified in the past as cave diver in backmount, 3 days, 6 dives, at least 4 of them in the cave area;

Divers who start their cave course in a sidemount configuration, however, need at least 2 additional days for this degree to exceed the limits of the cave course.

Training in technical diving is performance based, so the duration stated is  the minimum and does not automatically lead to certification. Add enough redundant days while on your vacation here to be able to adopt to your needs.
