The RAID Sidemount Diver is a modern program designed to include all the current Sidemount procedures suitable for cave, technical and recreational dives.
Sidemount, although invented for cave diving, has become a mainstream recreational and technical equipment configuration. It allows for longer dives and provides the diver with an increased level of redundancy due to carrying two independent cylinders.
The program may be combined with other RAID programs to “tailor-make” a program based on student needs and aspirations. This means Sidemount may be combined with Open Water 20, or with a technical, wreck or cave program. The only requirements are that all prerequisites have been met and that the hours and minimum standards for both courses have been met and adhered to.

Sidemount Program Overview

Divers May Use:


⭐ It is an extremely flexible program allowing instructors to complete the skills when they feel their students are ready. The program is not dedicated to one style of sidemount diving. This allows a more international feel and allows instructors to use either Floridian or Mexican sidemount philosophies or slight modifications thereof.
