SINGAPORE PADI SIDEMOUNT DIVER COURSE
WHO IS IT FOR
For divers who are looking for a more streamlined and efficient way of diving, Sidemount diving is the next generation of diving. However, this course requires a lot of commitment from the diver on course and it is not a course for adding on to your card collection.
Re-teaching and realigning your concept on trimming, the correct method of using appropriate diving equipment, and the importance of becoming a truly independent and self-reliant diver are some of the attributes we have instilled into the PADI Sidemount Scuba Diver Course.
EQUIPMENT YOU WILL BE USING
SIDEMOUNT SPECIALIZED EQUIPMENT
The PADI Sidemount Scuba Diving Course requires very specialized hardware. Using appropriate sidemounting equipment, coupled with custom hardware, allow divers to pick up skills relatively faster than using makeshift equipment. Our training department has acquired some of the more reputable brands such as Xdeep, Scubapro, Apeks and Atomic for our PADI Sidemount Training Courses.
I have only the basic certification. Can I attend?
If you only have entry-level certification with only 10 dives, we would suggest you do a few more dives and improve on your buoyancy prior to attending this course. Alternatively, you can do the Advance Buoyancy Course prior to PADI Sidemount Diver Course. This might help you in learning must faster in terms of bouyancy.
Will more advanced techniques of finning be covered in this course?
Yes, we will be going through more advanced finning techniques such as frog kicks, helicopter finning during this course.
What if I am unable to complete all the skills for the course?
All PADI Recreational scuba diving courses are performance and student-centric based. If you or we feel that you are weak in certain areas, we will request that you attend some additional pools prior to the ocean dives evaluation.
Why are the prices so much more expensive?
We get this question alot. While most dive centres are simply promoting on sidemount diving, we do not want to do that. We want to train you to become an independent sidemount diver, capable of adjusting your own equipment, getting into proper trimming and using proper finning techniques suitable for sidemount diving.
All these will take alot of time.
