PADI Rebreather Open Water certification

This course qualifies you to dive independently with either another rebreather or open circuit diver, to a depth of 18 meters/60 feet and within no decompression limits, and to be able to safely bail out to open circuit at any time. 

Knowledge development takes place through independent study and Instructor led prescriptive teaching, practical sessions in unit assembly and dive checks, and the course includes 6 training dives with a minimum time on the unit of 200 minutes and in-water skills cover clearing a flooded loop, monitoring heads-up display (HUD) and electronics, buoyancy and trim, switching to bail out, alternate air source use with another rebreather diver, and deploying a submersible marker buoy.

The PADI Rebreather Diver course goals are:

  • Prepare and predive check a Type R rebreather following accepted practices and the specific manufacturer's requirements for the unit.
  • Dive with a Type R rebreather demonstrating effective buoyancy control, depth and time management and generally effective application of the dive skills taught in the course, or prerequisite to the course.
  • Perform post dive care and maintain a Type R rebreather following accepted practices and specific manufacturer requirements for the unit.
  • Recognize and respond appropriately to problems and emergencies that occur during setup, diving or post dive.
