Tech Sidemount Instructor

Who should take this course?

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.

What Will You Learn?


If you aren’t a certified Tec Sidemount Diver, then your Tec Sidemount Instructor course will include the entire Tec Sidemount Diver course. You’ll not only get to practice all the skills, but will also get the chance to present knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching segments. 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.

Who should take this course?


Enriched air, trimix and rebreather diving just can’t happen without the right gas mixes. Not only does a dive shop need the right blending equipment, but it also needs qualified gas blenders. As a Tec Gas Blender Instructor, you can help meet the demand for gas blenders by offering this important training – the Tec Gas Blender course.

To enroll in a Tec Gas Blender Instructor course, you must be a:

PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor
PADI Enriched Air Instructor
Tec Gas Blender
Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply – ask your Tec Gas Blender Instructor Trainer.

What will you learn?


Since you’re already a gas blender, the course reviews your knowledge of gas blending procedures to make sure that you not only understand them, but can explain critical information to others. You also demonstrate step-by-step oxygen cleaning procedures, practice teaching segments of the course and create different gas blends.
