Rebreather Diver Training and Cross-Overs
DIVE Northampton offers a full range of Rebreather Courses that utilises the very latest in diver training.
You can choose to certify using either one of the PADI Rebreather programmes or one of the RAID Rebreather programmes. Both training systems are recognised around the world and offer unique advantages. It is best to take a look at the courses available and decide which suits your training requirements best. If in doubt, get in touch and we'll happily discuss the options open to you in more detail.
The PADI Rebreather and Advanced Rebreather Diver courses use 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.
All rebreathers used during PADI courses must be third-party tested and manufacturers must ensure they meet a comprehensive list of requirements.
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. The PADI Rebreather Qualifier focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to use a different Type R rebreather model.
The courses are very much based around self-study materials linked to in-depth Instructor led theory sessions and exams before moving on the the hands-on elements. You collect your training materials when you book your course and complete your self-study before coming in for theory sessions.
The RAID courses are built around detailed course materials, multiple quiz and answers, evaluations and Dive Centre, Instructor, Student on-line interaction.
