Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) diving is the way more and more BSAC divers are going.
CCR diving has some amazing benefits over traditional open circuit (OC) diving, such as cheaper gas bills, best gas mix for the depth, longer dive times and perhaps most importantly no bubbles!
Amaze yourself with just how much quieter CCR diving actually is and literal see the difference right before your eyes!
Enrolment requirements and course content
|Minimum 18 years of age|
|Minimum BSAC Sports Diver with 35m depth progession|
|Minimum 50 logged dives|
|Minimum Accelerated Decompression Diver, or Advanced Nitrox Diver, or equivalent from another recognised diver training agency|
|9 Theory lessons|
|2 Dry practical sessions|
|1 Sheltered water training dive|
|6 Open water session|
You will learn how to safely dive on a closed circuit rebreather to a maximum depth of 40m using air diluent and with a bailout. You'll learn how the unit works, how to correctly set it up, use it, dive it and maintain it. You'll learn the theory and have plenty of time to become familiar with the unit, both in and out of the water!
Safety is always paramount so you'll also learn how to recognise and respond to kit and diver issues, including how to rescue another CCR diver from depth.
You can learn to dive on our AP Ispiration with 2020 vision handset and rent the unit for the course duration or alternatively you can bring your own AP (Ambient Pressure) unit out with you.
If you are choose to bring your own AP unit please contact us in good time, to allow time for us to liaise with AP Diving if required.
- how the unit works, how to set it up, dive it and maintain it
- the importance of good buoyancy and the factors that affect your buoyancy body position and trim
- dive and gas planning
- dive conduct
- how to recognise and respond to equipment failures and diver issues
- how to rescue another CCR diver from depth
As a BSAC CCR Diver you'll be able to safely plan and conduct CCR dives, including mandatory decompression, using air diluent on an AP unit. You will be able to build up your depth progression to a maximum depth of 40m and you'll be able to rescue another CCR diver from depth.
You could sign up for the full BSAC CCR Diver course. If you've just done the CCR Diver course then you do some more fun dives with BSAC Lanzarote and keep using those newly learnt skills.
Looking forward you could progress your technical OC diving to Sport Mixed Gas Diver which, when you have some CCR diving experience, would compliment, the Sport Mixed Gas CCR Diver (50m) course.
