PADI Recreational Sidemount Instructor
With the choice of Sidemount configuration becoming more and more popular around the world, PADI has introduced Sidemount as a specialty instructor rating that you can include on your Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) program or add it to your already existing specialty Instructor ratings.
Sidemount diving is a special form of tank configuration for open water divers and is a great bridge into the technical diving world of cave diving. Many cave divers choose sidemount due to the many advantages it allows. Here are just some of the reasons why you can convince your students to become sidemount divers.
1. Allows a larger volume of gas which will increase your bottom time on your favourite dive site
2. Safety reasons. If ever there was a gas loss, your student can easily locate and recognize the problem, and deal with it quickly without compromising their gas reserves
3. Exploration! Sidemount configuration allows you to squeeze thru tight areas where you normally can not venture on the back mounted configuration.
