Diving Matrix

IANTD CCR Diver

Rebreathers have opened up a whole new dimension in diving, offering the ultimate in gas-efficient 'no bubbles' diving for recreational and technical divers alike. By recycling the gas that we exhale, rebreathers are super-efficient gas management tools that use a fraction of the gas used by conventional open circuit divers.

ccr diverIANTD's range of Rebreather training programs allow you to develop your skills and knowledge of Rebreather diving in a safe, progressive and controlled manner under the direct supervision of your IANTD Rebreather instructor.

Building upon your existing knowledge and skills, you'll learn the benefits of Rebreather diving and develop your dive skills to competently prepare and maintain a Rebreather and to safely plan and conduct Rebreather dives. From Entry to Expedition-level, IANTD's Rebreather training programs are at the very cutting edge...

To become a self-sufficient diver is the most difficult part for a diver. Scuba diver training goes faster and faster, so time is needed to digest the training. We must train physically, mentally and in-water to become an autonomous diver: somebody who can take care of himself and his buddies while respecting the environment. We all need "Essentials Training at different levels in our diver life. Quality training, education, feedbacks are some of the keys! "The day I stop learning something in diving, I will stop diving": John Orlowski.

This mid-level Specialty Continuing Education Diver Program is designed to enable the certified diver to extend proficiency in the water and to review and put in practice the Essentials learned in any IANTD diver classes. These techniques and knowledge prepare a diver for more advanced recreational diving programs.

The Essentials Diver course is recommended for all divers wishing to increase skill competency. This course does not provide a deeper diving qualification to the diver.

Prerequisites:

  • Must be a qualified as an IANTD Open Water Diver or any Entry Level Diver equivalent, or qualified as a Recreational Rebreather Diver.
  • Must be a minimum of 15 years of age with a parent or guardian authorization, or a minimum of 12 years of age for Junior Diver qualification, or a minimum of 18 years of age without guardian approval.

Equipment Requirements:

  • IANTD Essentials Diver Kit.
  • Same as Equipment requirements listed in the general Sport Diver Programs overview. A long hose (1.5m) is recommmended, and with a short hose with a necklace as backup, wings and plate, Transpac, or other. In addition, it is recommended that either a dual outlet valve, or a small set of doubles (7 litres) or a popny or stage cylinder no larger than 4 litres be used but not required. Or a diver who is OW SideMount qualified may use side-mounted cylinders.

The IANTD Closed Circuit Rebreather Diver program trains the diver in the theory and practical skills necessary to safely dive using a closed circuit rebreather in the Advanced Nitrox/Advanced Recreational Trimix depth range. You will learn how to strip down, prepare and check the rebreather and how to conduct pre dive safety procedures before each dive and then develop your skills from confined to open water using a closed circuit rebreather.

The program qualifies divers in the safe use of a closed circuit rebreather for dives to a maximum depth of 48 msw (160 fsw) if using diluent with helium or 42 msw (140 fsw) if using an air diluent with a maximum of 15 mins of decompression.

Prerequisites:

  • Must be an IANTD Advanced EANx Diver or Advanced Recreational Trimix Diver or equivalent.
  • Must be a minimum of 18 years of age.

Equipment Requirements:

  • IANTD CCR-specific Diver Student Kit.
  • Own or have unlimited access to an approved closed circuit rebreather.

The IANTD Normoxic Trimix CCR Diver program takes the diver to the next step in their closed circuit training to cover decompression diving in the extended range using a normoxic trimix diluent.

Building on the closed circuit procedures learnt in the IANTD CCR Diver program, you will gain the skills and knowledge to extend your closed circuit diving safely. A significant part of the course covers the bailout equipment and procedures necessary to take the diver into the extended range environment whilst using closed circuit equipment.

The knowledge and skills taught in the IANTD Normoxic Trimix CCR Diver program qualify divers to perform closed circuit trimix dives to a maximum depth of 60 msw.

Prerequisites:

  • Must be an IANTD CCR Diver or equivalent.
  • Must have 20 dives and 25 hours on the rebreather being used.
  • Divers certified as OC Normoxic Trimix may take this course combined with the Rebreather Diver course with qualification given once the 20 dives and 25 hours are logged.
  • Must be a minimum of 18 years of age.

Equipment Requirements:

  • IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver Student Kit for CCR.
  • Own or have unlimited access to an approved rebreather.

The knowledge and skills taught in the IANTD Trimix CCR Diver program qualify divers to perform closed circuit trimix dives to a maximum depth of 100 msw.

Prerequisites:

  • IANTD Normoxic Trimix CCR Diver or equivalent.
  • Must have 50 hours on the rebreather being trained.
  • Must be a minimum of 18 years of age.
