  1. I am a Padi Tectrimix diver and CCR diver from another agency
    Can I cross over to the PADI CCR courses or will I have to do the whole lot again from scratch
    I also dive more than one make of rebreather, are the courses unit specific – any cross overs needed from unit to unit ?
    Will you have courses for MCCRs

  2. what is the requirements for technical rebreather 100 meters and another levels for tech rebreather?

  3. The biggest drawback is price of the CCR unit. Does PADI expect the student to buy his/her own unit? Or are the PADI/PADI shops renting?

  4. I think its time that more and more PADI dive centers get CCR’s and offer courses to clients. CCR’s for rent is a must. One can travel with only soft parts of the system (hoses and lungs) and connect it to the main aperatus making it their own. I believe that less demand of buying CCR’s will eventually sell more courses and more systems as divers will have the oportunity to try, enjoy, use on vacations etc’ then decide if they want to perchase their own CCR and of which make. This is up to us, operators to educate the market to an easy and comfortable use rather to creat dificulties.
