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.
