Rebreathers are starting to dominate technical diving and are also gaining popularity within recreational diving. When you consider the huge advantages of seemingly unlimited gas supplies, plus warm moist air to breathe coupled with the ability to get up close and personal with marine life; its easy to see why.
The IANTD Closed Circuit Rebreather Diver program is a technical level course designed to train competent divers in the safer use and technology of CCR for dives requiring up to 15 minutes of decompression. It is also especially useful to train divers who wish to dive up to 160 fsw (48 msw) if using diluent with helium or 140 fsw (42 msw) if using air as a diluent.
