TDI rEvo CCR Diver Course (and options)
Welcome to the silent world of Closed Circuit Rebreathers (CCR) on the rEvo. There are three entry level courses available. The one most suited to you will be based on your existing diver certifications and where you want your diving to take you. The rEvo CCR is available to buy here in Perth through Perth Scuba. Dive addiction in conjunction with Perth Scuba offer the rEvo user courses and hire units.
Air Diluent No Decompression 30 meter course.
CCR's are suitable for recreational divers, not just technical divers. CCR diving brings the marine life to you. With no bubbles or noise the marine life treat you like another fish. No more scaring away critters with those bubbles while taking that magic shot or video.
Air Diluent Decompression 40 meter course.
CCR's are like a portable gas blending machine strapped to your back. Technical divers receive the advantage of having the best breathing mix provided at every depth thus reducing decompression obligations.
Helitrox Diluent Decompression 45 meter course.
Adding Helium to the breathing mix reduces narcosis and makes breathing easier (lower gas density). And with the reduced gas consumption, Trimix (a combination of Oxygen, Helium and Nitrogen) becomes relatively economical (45 meter Helitrox Dil Deco course).
