PADI will be releasing a series of closed circuit rebreather courses in 2011.
They will be divided into recreational CCR and technical CCR down to 100m
Here is the proposed course flow chart...
But what units can we use???
So far on the recreational side only the Poseidon Mk 6 Discovery meets their criteria...the machine has only killed a couple of divers so far...
On the tec side apparently anything that has been third party tested....will this mean CE approval (Chinese Export)
Will safer manually controlled CCRs be allowed or are PADI only going to allow electronic boxes of death?
We will find out next year!
