Advanced Sidemount Cave Diver
The Advanced Sidemount Cave Diver course goes beyond what is covered in the Technical Sidemount Diver course. It addresses passing through restrictions that likely require the removal of one or both sidemount cylinders, stage bottles, gas management techniques, and riding a DPV in sidemount configuration. As students will be diving sidemount during the course, documentation of prior training or experience is required.
Certification is through the NSS-CDS.
