When you are learning to dive with a rebreather, there are a number of differences compared to education on open circuit scuba systems. The first big difference is that all courses are unit-specific, this means that you will only be certified to use the rebreather model you are training on (then there is a possibility of crossovers between different rebreathers). The next big difference is that much of what you learned about bouyancy control (on open circuit) does not apply anymore. This means that you are a beginner again and it will take time before you return to the same level as you are on an open system today.

There is also a distinction between technical rebreathers (Type T) for technical diving and rebreathers for recreational diving (Type R). This means that all courses are not possible on all systems. The Poseidon MkVI is a Type R rebreather (but it can be upgraded to a Type T) and the Sentinel is a Type T rebreather.

At present, we offer the following courses on the various machines. A yes means that the course is possible on the rebreath model and that we offer it, a no means that the course is not available for the rebreath model. If there is no text at all, there is the course for the rebreather model but we do not offer it at the moment.
