TDI SIDEMOUNT SF2
AIR DILUENT DIVER (MOD1)
What scuba gear will you use?
You’ll use standard tec diving equipment appropriate for the local environment, including your exposure suit, mask, fins and weight system. Snorkels are optional, but a collapsible snorkel can be carried in your pocket. You’ll also need a Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB) and reel, an audible surface signaling device, slate and a compass. I will advise you about the Type T CCR you’ll learn to use and suggest a CCR dive computer with open-circuit bailout capability (if not integrated into the CCR), offboard life support system, and oxygen analyzer along with other beneficial gear.
minimum certification requirements:
Satisfactorily complete the TDI CCR Air Diluent Decompression examination with a passing score of 80%, followed by 100% remediation by the Instructor

SF2 rebreather can be used in either backmount or sidemount and each configuration requires different skill sets and unit check therefore is run as independent training programs. Diver looking to move into rebreather but are used to diving in sidemount will quickly see the SF2 ECCR Sidemount rebreather is possibly the best rebreather on the market for this configuration.
If you have no previous rebreather experience you will be required to first learn the SF2 rebreather in a backmount configuration prior to taking class in sidemount configuration. The Sidemount SF2 ECCR rebreather is best used in overhead environments and I we strongly recommend gaining certification as an advanced sidemount trained diver prior to starting your SF2 sidemount rebreather training using a Sidemount configuration.
You will learn more about the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures when diving a CCR on decompression dives, while managing two stage bottles.
This course is accompanied by a service and repair workshop for in-field problem solving and maintenance; setup and maintenance of the unit, loop volume management, calibration of electronics, emergency procedures, buoyancy control, CNS tracking
The TDI Air Diluent Rebreather course runs over five days. Should you wish to continue on to decompression procedures on CCR, the course takes seven days if you meet the prerequisites.
During this course, I will teach you all of the necessary skills to conduct no decompression CCR dives to a maximum depth of 30 metres/100 feet using air diluent.
