The PADI Semiclosed Rebreather Course
If novelty and diving quietly appeal to to you, then try the Semiclosed Rebreather course.
The Fun Part
The main feature of a semiclosed rebreather is the reduced bubbles and silence it offers, which allows you to get closer to shy wildlife.
What You Learn
Through the Semiclosed Rebreather Specialty course you learn the special procedures for semiclosed rebreather scuba diving. This includes special dive planning, organization, procedures and potential hazards, many of which differ significantly from conventional (open circuit) scuba.
It specifically focuses on the features, accessories, maintenance and proper use of the Draeger Semi-closed Rebreather. You make at least one confined water dive and at least three open water dives to learn:
- Advantages and disadvantages of the rebreather
- Assembly, disassembly and maintenance
- Dive planning and emergency procedures with semiclosed rebreathers
To purchase learning materials and equipment, contact your local PADI dive shop or resort
Your Next Adventure
While diving with a rebreather and getting up close and personal with the wildlife, you’ll probably want your underwater camera to capture the memories. The PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course can give you the tips you need to bring home some great snapshots.
