TDI CCR Air Diluent Course (no deco)

The TDI CCR Air Diluent course (certification depends on unit used) is the basic entry level certification for Closed Circuit Rebreather diving. The objective of the course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for diving on a CCR to a maximum depth of 30m.

What you learn
Using the latest in technology CCR’s to maximize your gas supply of Nitrox and provide the optimum breathing gas for any depth by maintaining a constant partial pressure of oxygen (PPO2). During the dives (minimum of six) you'll learn all the nesscery skills to conduct CCR dives to a maximum depth of 30m.

Skills include:

Qualification gained
Upon successful completion, you will be able to perform dives using the specific rebreather you were taught on, to a maximum depth of 30m, using an air diluent with no decompression allowed.

Pre-requisites
To enrol on this course, you must:

Course structure
5-days. With classroom, confined water session and 7 open water dives. 420 minutes underwater time required for certification.

Equipment
You will need your own full set of diving kit. If you do not own a rebreather unit, we can provide one for the duration of the course at a discounted rate.
