CCR Rebreather Program
Imagine finding the perfect subject to take pictures of while diving: you get your camera ready, settings are in place, you’re getting closer, and you are ready to capture this ideal image in front of you… then you exhale a mass of bubbles, and the moment quickly vanishes! Your perfect picture disappeared right before your eyes.
Silent diving and zero bubbles…welcome to the next step in Technical Diving. You can dive deeper, stay longer, decompress less, and carry less weight…all while being extremely quiet. Rebreathers are the best way to become “one” with the marine world around you. . Using the latest in technology CCR’s 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 seven) your TDI Instructor will teach you all the necessary skills to conduct CCR dives to a maximum depth of 30 m/100 feet. The skills for this CCR Diving Course include:
- Setup and maintenance of the unit
- Loop volume management
- Calibration of electronics
- Emergency procedures
- Buoyancy control
- CNS tracking
The individual TDI CCR manuals provide comprehensive information about the units and how they operate during a dive.
The Generic Rebreather Manual is the text-book literary assistant to the TDI Any CCR certification course. A perspective student will find this course to give descriptive, educational, and in-depth knowledge for a variety of topics regarding the history of rebreathers, an introduction to rebreathers, the mechanics behind CCR's, dive planning, diving with a rebreather, emergency procedure drills, as well as avoiding rebreather incidents and accidents.
