Basic Rebreather Diver


The PADI Rebreather Diver course uses Type R units to introduce divers to rebreather diving within recreational dive limits. Type R rebreathers are electronically controlled and provide a back up for all the major systems and simplify training and use. Because each rebreather model is different, you will need to qualify on each rebreather model. However, once you are qualified you will not need to repeat the entire course to earn your certification with a different Type R rebreather model.

PADI Rebreather Diver is an entry level rebreather program you will learn to use Type R rebreathers to a maximum of 18 metres within no decompression limits.
