Tandem Circuit Breaker

Hello. New to the forum. I am finishing my daughter's basement and running a new 14/2 line from the panel box to install lights. The panel is full and I want to replace one of the 15 amp single breakers with a tandem 15. Per the diagram on the ITE panel, I believe it allows tandems on all of the breaker locations.

can anyone please verify this. thanks.Name:  Parel.jpg

The panel schedule looks like you have a 20-40 panel, 20 full size breakers for 20 circuits will fit or 20 tandem CTL type breakers for 40 circuits will fit.

I think I would rework the panel schedule though, it's a mess like it is now.

Yes, tandems are allowed in every slot.

Isn't that schedule confusing, or am I missing something?

Shouldn't both write in lines for position #1 (top left) be As, both lines for position 3 be Bs, both lines for position 5 be As, both lines for position 2 on the right be Bs, etc? That is, going down the left it would be AABBAABB instead of ABABABAB?

The A and B after the number is to denote top or bottom handle..... not the leg it's on.
