If you?re serious about becoming a technical instructor and joining the ranks of PADI TecRec technical instructors, the Tec Sidemount Instructor course is an obvious choice. Teach others how to explore the mysteries of the deep using the increasingly popular sidemount configuration.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
The PADI Tec Sidemount Instructor course incorporates instructional philosophies and course goals that directly address the demanding and challenging nature of technical diving instruction using sidemount. Sidemount has caught on in both recreational and open-circuit Tec diving as a popular alternative equipment configuration.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY CERTIFICATION?
You can qualify divers to use sidemount so they can take any of the TecRec open-circuit Tec courses using the configuration. You can also train divers to use sidemount within the limits of their current open-circuit TecRec certifications.
