TDI and Poseidon MKVI Instructor Ccourse at Mermet Springs Illinois, August 16th and 17th

TDI and Poseidon are headed to the East Coast to provide a new adventure to Northeast diving professionals so they can pass it onto their customers. This time we will be joining forces in the Pennsylvania. If you are a current CCR instructor and have not yet qualified with the new Poseidon MKVI (the world’s first recreational rebreather), here is another opportunity to become qualified on this equipment.

TDI, in conjunction with staff from Poseidon, will conduct an instructor crossover course for current CCR instructors on August 16th and 17th in Mermet Springs, Illinois. This is the perfect opportunity to meet HQ and Poseidon staff, as well as to network with Closed Circuit Rebreather instructors and the manufacturer.
