Rebreather Instructor may teach the course provided they are an instructor on the specific Rebreather being taught in the course. The instructor may use any other SCR they are diver qualified on in addition to being an instructor on the one (1) being taught in the class. The instructor may not teach a rebreather they are not qualified on as an instructor. For instance, a Dolphin Instructor may not teach an Azimuth Diver class unless they are also an Azimuth Instructor.
This Program is designed to train competent divers in the safer use and technology of basic SCR diving with no decompression, with mixtures between EAN 40 and higher, and depths up to 70 fsw (21 msw). This course may be used as an entry-level course to SCUBA diving if combined with the OW program in which case OC dives will be substituted with SCR dives. The diver can dive to a maximum depth of 100 fsw (30 msw) if they are guided or supervised dive by a rebreather supervisor or instructor or previously qualified as Deep Diver. The training requirements here in are IANTD minimums. Other manufacturer’s requirements MAY APPLY for specific Rebreathers so consult manufacturers literature prior to teaching.
