Explore deeper, longer and more challenging underwater environment

Technical Diving Try-Out

Most divers venture to technical diving to polish their diving skills and become high capability divers

Technical Diving is a specialized type of diving that involves exploring deeper and more challenging underwater environments than those typically encountered during Recreational Dives. It requires extensive training, specialized equipment, and a thorough understanding of dive theory and emergency procedures.

Technical Diving Courses offer experienced divers the opportunity to learn advanced skills and techniques necessary for diving at greater depths and in more complex environments. These courses include diving in Sidemount or Twin Tank configuration, more than 40m depth diving, cave diving, mixed-gas diving, and other specialized training. Technical divers must be proficient in the use of specialized equipment, such as rebreathers, dive computers, and redundant gas supply systems.

Technical Diving offers lots of excitement and benefit. Technical divers are able to explore new and uncharted underwater environments, including wrecks, caves, and deep reefs. They are also able to conduct scientific research and participate in conservation efforts. Technical diving requires a high level of discipline, patience, and mental and physical toughness, and it can be a deeply rewarding and life-changing experience.

Sidemount or Twin Tank?

Why not both? 

These two Technical Diving configurations involve carrying multiple tanks and using multiple regulators. Regardless, there are differences that make each of them unique. Let's get to know each of them first before we do the comparison and identify the benefits of them.

Sidemount diving offers greater flexibility and manoeuvrability, as tanks are mounted on the side of the body rather than at the back. The tanks also can be don and doff easily while diving as they are attached using bolt-snap and bungee. Unlike twin tank, the tanks are attached to the BCD using bolt and nut, so it is fixed while diving until the tanks are detach manually on land. This make it easier for the sidemount diver to navigate tight spaces and explore caves. Further explanation about sidemount diving can be referred to this article; Sidemount Diving On The Rise.

Instead of the typically single tank backmount, twin tank is a configuration where two tanks are mounted at the back of the diver. The tanks are connected by a manifold, which allow air to be shared between the tanks if needed. Twin tank need to be use together with backplate BCD because the tanks are connected using bolts and nuts to the backplate. The bladder of the backplate BCD is bigger and has higher lift than common single tank backplate BCD. Those divers that own backplate BCD, they can use the same backplate to carry the twin tank. Just change the single tank bladder to the twin tank bladder.

In the pool, Faza was thorough in his briefings and clear in his underwater skills demonstrations. He was patient when certain skills took longer for me to perform, and adapted the skills if I found certain tasks difficult. He even taught me additional skills (as a bonus). The pool session is recorded. The recordings are used at the end of each day to discuss skills you performed well, areas you can improve on, and general tips for sidemount diving. I found this service to be the best thing about taking the course with Faza - he really wants to help you become a great sidemount diver!

I can honestly say that this was one of the most fulfilling diving course I have taken in a very long time, and a great part of that is down to Faza! I highly recommend taking your sidemount (as well as recreational or technical) diving course with him and his team at Qoshki Dive! I will certainly come back next year for my technical diving certifications!!


I had super awesome experience with Qoshki Dive Team :) Faza is very professional instructor and I learned alot. Highly recommended.

Someone need pool session in KL, have to contact to him. 4.5m deep pool ๐Ÿ‘


The instructor and his assistant really understood me as a rather slow student, especially the instructor, he was very patient. He is concerned about my weaknesses and tries to give an understanding in theory & practical. With equipment, well -equipped and nice facilities, as well as a very comfortable place. Alhamdulillah I succeeded and performed very well and received my OW followed by AOW. Am so thankful.

I recommends Qoshki Dive to anyone out there who wants to be a scuba diver. Dont worry, they are very experienced and know how to deal with various type of student. They will make sure you fully understand thus enjoy scuba diving succesfully and safely.


Is a wonderful experience having a dive course with (Qoshki Dive Team).
Is hard to use words to express the dive journey with them.

Qoshki Dive Team, give me a very good training, coach Faza he very detail to explain everything and every step, all the precautions he explained well.
In the beginning I might be a bit nervous when go into water. All the time coach Faza is well take care to a newbie like me. During the time I panic under the deep dive, coach Faza is very experienced to handle me, in short time to calm me down.

The whole journey is marvellous. For those want to get a diving license, I personally highly recommend to find a good dive academy Qoshki.


Other than the top tier gear provided by the Qoshki Dive, I have learnt a lot from them and through that process of learning I am now more confident to be close to the corals due to the better buoyancy skills and better movements underwater. The training we have on land are very hands on so the students are more likely to transfer the knowledge into their dive seamlessly and become a better diver.


Conducted my advanced diving license here. Very thorough and safety focused !!


Really liked the instructor's attitude, his professional course arrangement, and teaching method. Absolutely enjoyed pool session at KL.

The instructor provided a very structured diving course. Plus the way he delivers the materials are very easy to understand. He also showed a very high degree of patient with overcoming challenges of a new diver.

Overall I am satisfied with the service given by Qoshki Dive! 5/5 Stars to them!


I was uncomfortable being underwater since my last dive was too long ago. I enroll with Qoshki Dive Program and it felt REFRESHED! The instructor (Faza) was extremely accommodating and helpful to my needs. His patience in teaching students was the highlight of my dive program because you would want to feel safe and not pressured too much when you get anxious underwater. Ms Zaidah was there too, recording our progress which we reviewed after the class, that tremendously helped us understand how we can improve out buoyancy, finning and overall trim

Thank you so much Qoshki Dive. 10/10 would recommend!


If I can sum up, my OW journey with Qoshki Dive exceeded my expectation!

From the start, I was already impressed with the clean, deep pool facilities and quality dive gears. As instructor, Faza is patient and attentive, which helped me to be more comfortable and confident doing all the skills required. For OW trip to Semporna, thatโ€™s another level of satisfaction leaving me with wonderful memories of life under and above water.
