The CCR Air Dil Rebreather Course is the entry level program for Closed Circuit Rebreathers. Closed Circuit Rebreathers are great for photographers, technical divers, and those who just want more time under water. A rebreather is also warmer and quieter than traditional scuba gear.
Full Course Cost: $1500 + Generic Rebreather Training From TDI
Once you've paid for the program you can then register with TDI
*Note* This course only runs from May - October

Note- All the paperwork you'll need, along with a what to do before class checklist is located at the bottom of this tab.
Pre-class intro and TDI Folder
Before you can start class you'll need to fill out some paperwork. Most of this can be done ahead of time, but some of it will have to be done in the shop. The only piece that MUST be completed at the shop is a folder provided by TDI. You will need to fill this particular folder out in the shop as we keep it for our records. You can do this before class - just remember to show up 30 minutes early if you haven't filled it out yet!
There are a couple of forms that can be done ahead of time. Most important is the medical. Go through the medical now and check to see if you need to answer "YES" to any of the questions. If so no big deal - you'll just need to get a doctors' sign-off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors' note is in the same file as the medical - Just scroll down to the next page. Remember IF you answer "YES" to anything in the medical it is COMPULSORY to get a doctors' note BE
After completing the form you will get an email signing you up for online training. The online training needs to be completed BEFORE coming to class. If you don't receive an email within 36 hours call the shop, and we'll make sure to unlock the training for you.
Since this course is semi-private you'll be working directly with the instructor to schedule your class time, pool sessions and dives. The course is typically finished with Three Classroom sessions, One Pool session and 7 Open Water Dives (minimum of 420 minutes).
This course is typically done as a partially private course already. If you're interested in taking this course and don't see it on the schedule please contact Alex, our Tech Diving director. He can be reached directly at Alex@ecdivers.com
