The TDI Pathfinder Closed Circuit Diver Course is your first step into closed circuit rebreather diving (CCR Diving) and your first truly quiet diving experience.  CCR’s maximize your gas supply of Nitrox and provide the optimum breathing gas for any depth by maintaining a constant partial pressure of oxygen (PPO2). During the dives your TDI Instructor will teach you all the necessary skills to conduct CCR dives to a maximum depth of 30 m/100 feet. The skills for this CCR Diving Course include:

  • Setup and maintenance of the unit
  • Loop volume management
  • Calibration of electronics
  • Emergency procedures
  • Buoyancy control
  • CNS tracking
  • Physics & Physiology
  • Dive planning

 

Prerequisites:

  • Must be over 18 years old
  • Certified in Advanced Nitrox from a recognized training agency (We can combine both courses if needed)
  • Experienced diver (100 dives recommended)
  • Be proficient in all basic diving skills (technical diving skills preferred)
  • Experience using at least one stage cylinder

 

Cost  $2000    (2 student minimum)

  • Cost does not include your expenses such as O2, Sorb, Site entry fees, or lodging. 
  • Instructor expenses will be split between all students. Factor $250 per student depending on location. 
  • Becky would be happy to travel to your area for training.  Please contact us to discuss options. 
 Note: My class does not just cover the minimum information you need to know and minimum standards. My course runs 6 days long which is longer than typical CCR training.
