PADI Asia Pacific recently conducted a crossover program for instructors on the popular JJ-CCR rebreather unit. The JJ-CCR rebreather has been called ‘the 4 x 4 of the rebreather community’ as it is built for all types of diving and can be adapted to handle the most demanding adventures.
Traditionally, technical rebreather courses have been unit-specific with different courses for each unit. PADI Tec CCR courses are both generic and unit specific. In addition to information that covers all CCRs, students and instructors use manufacturer literature and materials, in addition to PADI materials, to cover information specific to the relevant unit. This provides the best of both worlds and gives PADI Tec CCR Divers a wide knowledge of different equipment and techniques.
The manufacture approved crossover program was conducted by Georgia Hausserman, PADI Tec Consultant and Thomas Knedlik, PADI Territory Director. Attending were some of the finest rebreather instructors from around the Asia Pacific region:
