Sidemount Instructor with student

Why should I become a Sidemount Instructor?

  • Because it’s new and innovative
  • Because it’s at the forefront of new diving techniques and technologies
  • Because it’s easy – no more tricky beach entries, just stroll into the water and clip on your tank
  • Because it’s easy – no more tricky beach entries, just stroll into the water and clip on your tank
  • Because it’s super streamlined and super cool
  • Because it’s the closest you’ll get to being a fish!

Will it increase my earning potential?

Absolutely. Your students will want to take this course because they will want to be super cool and super different just like you! This style of scuba diving is such a new thing that many “old school” Instructors won’t be certified to teach it. This leaves the door wide open to you. It’s also one of the few courses where your students will want to buy some serious equipment which means more sales commission to you. Don’t forget that when you become aa dive professional you’re changing the hobby you love into a business you love and you need to find as many ways as you can to maximize your income. It also puts you at the forefront of new diving innovations.

What is the schedule for the program?

It takes just two days. The first day will be in the class and the swimming pool, and on the second day you will do two ocean dives.

Do I need to be a Sidemount diver before I start the Instructor course?

No – you can start with no previous experience as you’ll learn everything you need to know to teach this course during the program.

I don’t want to be an Instructor I just want to be a Sidemount diver

No problem. Read about taking the diver-level course at Bali Scuba. 

How much does the Sidemount instructor training cost?

What’s the deal with equipment rental?

The great thing is that if you rent Sidemount equipment then you decide to buy from us we will fully refund your rental fee. This is a great opportunity to try before you buy, to see if it feels right for you and you can take on board the advice of your Instructor. You can choose to rent full equipment from us, or to minimize your costs (and for your own comfort), bring your own basics – mask, fins, wetsuit etc.’s
