All Tec CCR Rebreather Courses

Closed circuit rebreather (CCR) courses and SCUBA diving with a CCR

Our Closed circuit rebreather (CCR) courses Dream about exploring the underwater world longer or deeper? Then the CCR rebreather courses are for you. The potential advantage of CCR Rebreathers will make your stay longer underwater with more no-decompression bottom times or less deco than the same dive on open circuit (OC). You will be able to dive deeper with less gas (which is a lot cheaper with a trimix), and you will be able to get up close to marine life as you will not make any bubbles and dive silently underwater.

This is where “The Silent World” (from Jacques-Yves Cousteau) take all its meaning, because on a close circuit rebreather (CCR) you won’t make any bubble noises.

During a dive on a CCR Rebreather, you will not alarm the sea life around. Fishes will think that you are part of the marine life. The CCR Rebreather is very famous among the professional underwater photographers and videographers as they can capture and record more closely to the sea creatures. Silent diving is a big plus aside from longer bottom time.

Diving with a Rebreather will give you more dive time. Capable of extended times when open circuit divers need to end their dives because they have reached their minimum gas limits, you will get to enjoy and dive longer, even for several hours, with only a 3 liters tank (0.8-gallon cylinder).

Because you are breathing in a loop and constantly recycling the exhausted gas, you are breathing a warm and humidified gas, which is a more comfortable than the dry and cold gas from the usual open circuit scuba gear. You can now dive without having that cotton-mouth feeling, and chilling in cold water, anymore.

OK a Rebreather is nice, but let's talk numbers!

One of the great advantages of the CCR rebreathers is that they have extreme low gas use which means there is no need for an expensive amount of helium for your trimix dives.
The average consomption of a diluent (your trimix gas) for a 50 meters (165 feet) deep dive with 1 hour and 30 minutes total time dive, is only 50 bars on a 3 liters cylinder (725 psi on a 0.8 gal tank). So all you have to do is to enjoy your underwater exploration.
But the most important during this dive "example," is that you will have less decompression time than the same profile with an open circuit gear. On a CCR you are at a constant PPO2 (Partial Pressure Oxygen) during all the dive, at whatever depth you are!

Interested in rebreather diving? Check below our CCR closed circuit rebreather courses.

PADI tec 40 CCR rebreather course.

PADI tec 40 ccr rebreather course Take a new level in the silent world and technical diving with the PADI Tec 40 CCR Rebreather course. You will learn how to use and dive with a CCR (closed circuit rebreather) without making any bubbles underwater. You will learn how to bail out, and other emergency issues. Once certified you will be able to dive worldwide with your Rebreather.

PADI tec 60 CCR rebreather course.

PADI tec 60 ccr rebreather course The PADI Tec 60 CCR Rebreather course is the second level of your scuba education on a Rebreather. You will learn to dive with a normoxic trimix on CCR (closed circuit rebreathers). You will be able to dive down to a maximum of 60 meters (200 feet) on a Rebreather.

PADI Tec 100 CCR rebreather course.

PADI tec 100 ccr rebreather course The PADI Tec 100 CCR Rebreather course is more challenging than the previous trimix normoxic CCR Rebreather course because it includes the usage of diluents and bailout gases which are highly hypoxic. In this course, you will learn how to dive to a maximum depth of 100m or 330ft, with a nonbreathable gas at the surface. You will acquire new risk management like when you need to switch off your ADV as your diluent will become not be breathable on reaching lower depth.
