Technical rebreather diving on closed circuit rebreathers


Technical diving has been revolutionized by the development, availability and reliability of Closed Circuit Rebreathers. Tec CCR provide numerous benefits to the technical diver, including: reduced gas consumption, optimum EANx blends for decompression and a wider range of solutions to equipment problems.

Consequently CCRs potentially allow the technical diver a greater access to time underwater – greater time based on gas logistics when compared with an open circuit technical diver and more time available to find solutions to gas management problems. As time is a critical and a finite resource divers wanting to dive at and beyond the recreational envelope can now choose PADI Technical CCR training to achieve their goals.

Why choose a PADI Tec CCR Rebreather Course?

To meet the demand for tec CCR courses PADI have launched a range of Technical rebreather courses suitable for rebreathers that have been registered on the PADI Type-T (technical) Unit Register. Included on the register at this time is the APD Inspiration, Poseidon Mk6 T, Poseidon Se7en, Hollis Prism 2, Dive Rite O2ptima and VR’s Sentinel.

PADI Tec CCR courses have the latest and most advanced educational materials.

PADI Tec CCR courses use the same Performance-Based Learning model as other PADI courses. This means that you progress as you demonstrate that you have mastered specific performance requirements essential to becoming a scuba diver. Your scuba instructor is there to help you meet these requirements, regardless of how quickly or slowly you master them. You must earn your PADI certification, but you do so in an encouraging and well-supported learning environment.
