The Poseidon Se7en has been registered as a Type R rebreather for use on PADI’s recreational rebreather courses. Although the technology is new, the Human Interface is the same as the MkVI so, from a training perspective, it will be interchangeable with the MkVI. This means that existing MkVI divers can use the Se7en and vice versa. It also means that MkVI instructors can teach divers to use the Se7en.
We can also add to the recent announcement that the MkVI T has been registered for use on Tec 40 CCR and Tec 60 CCR courses, that the Se7en will also qualify for these levels. There will be more information on qualifying to teach these levels shortly.
