Sidemount Course.JPG

Do or do not. There is no try.

"A goal without a plan is just a wish"


Course Duration: 3 to 4 Days

People said "once you go side, you never go back", it's an anecdote for those who dive with Sidemount compared to the common Backmount, with these consideration:

  • Redundancy

  • Better buoyancy control and trim

  • More streamlined in the water

  • Looks way cooler than others =)

An intensive training program which purposely designed as the essentials of Sidemount diving.

  • Theory: brief history of Sidemount, pre-dive planning, and gas management.

  • Land Drills: introduction to Sidemount configuration, equipments, and set-up.

  • In-Water Skills: multiple entries technique, Valve Drill, S-Drill, regulator switch, SPG check & gas management, cylinders trim check, controlled ascent and descent, advance propulsion techniques (finning), equipment failures and SMB deployment.

Course Duration: 2 to 3 Days

The program that introduce you to Sidemount multi-stages configuration, whether you aim to use additional decompression cylinders or use additional safety gas in open water or overhead environment. It is suitable both for Sidemount sport divers who want to start their journey to more technical levels, and for existing technical divers who wish to transition from Twinset Backmount to Sidemount configuration.

  • Land Workshops including Technical Sidemount system configuration and stages configuration (rigging and regulators) review, gas loss, gas switches and emergency procedures.

  • Theory covering pre-dive planning including runtime management, gas choices, gas rules for decompression and overhead environment, gas management, SAC rate.

  • In-water skills focusing on water entries/exit options, stages donning & doffing, buoyancy control and trim with 3 to 4 cylinders, cylinders trim interaction, technical propulsion techniques, team positioning, communication, gas matching, gas switches, gas management, valve drills, gas sharing and rescue, gas loss. Additional skills suitable for your current technical level will apply (staged decompression ascents, overhead gas management, techniques for restriction, etc)

Basic Sidemount foundation is required and experience is best to enrol this course. It also can be combined with other courses.

Overhead environment vary from cavern to the wreck diving. It is true daring adventure with endless possibility, throwing back to the human history. As humans, we've always innovated our way out of problems, whether it was the first torch to light a dark cave or the steam engine of the ship that sparked a revolution.


This course is designed to develop the minimum skills and knowledge, for cavern and overhead environment diving within the limits of light penetration; in addition outlines specific hazards associated with cave diving. The objective of this course is to train divers in the proper planning, procedures, techniques and hazards of cavern diving. it is the base before continuing education for Intro to Cave, Full Cave, Stage Cave, Surveying, and DPV, Rebreather Cave.


Wreck diving can be one of the most exciting aspects of sport diving, however every effort must be made to maximize safe diving techniques. This course will discuss the equipment and techniques commonly employed while wreck diving. This course may be taught as a non-penetration, 2 dives required, or as a limited-penetration course, requiring 3 dives. Limited- penetration is defined as a swim through or within the ambient light of entry point. It is a basic course before Advance Wreck with more penetrations.
