PADI Advanced Rebreather Diver Course Overview

If you're a certified recreational rebreather diver, then this is your next step.  The PADI Advanced Rebreather Diver course will help you expand upon your existing knowledge of rebreathers, and also expand the depth of your diving range to 40 meters.  You must be a certified recreational rebreather diver and and have an advanced open water certification as well to take this course.

Course Duration:

This is a 3 day course with 5 dives with a maximum depth of 30m.


Who should take this course?

If you’re interested in rebreathers for their silence and maximized no stop dive time, and are happy to stay within recreational diving depth limits, then the PADI Advanced Rebreather Diver course is for you. This course builds on your PADI Rebreather Diver certification by expanding your knowledge, adding a bailout cylinder, and training you to dive as deep as 40 metres/130 feet. If you aren’t a certified rebreather diver yet, no problem – ask your PADI Rebreather Instructor about combining the PADI Rebreather and Advanced Rebreather Diver courses.

To enroll in the PADI Advanced Rebreather Diver course, you must:

  • Be a PADI Open Water Diver, but you must earn a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification to become a PADI Advanced Rebreather Diver
  • Have a minimum of 30 logged dives
  • Are at least 18 years old

To dive deeper than 30 metres/100 feet, you must be a PADI Deep Diver.

Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply – ask your PADI Rebreather Instructor.

What will you learn?

Through self-study and instructor-guided sessions, you’ll learn about scrubbers, oxygen consumption and bailout requirements, including how to configure a bailout cylinder system. Because rebreathers vary significantly, you’ll also study the manufacturer’s literature for the type of rebreather you’ll train on. During one confined water dive and four open water dives, you’ll practice bailout and other emergency procedures, as well as planning and executing deep rebreather dives.


The cost of this course varies depending on which rebreather you'd like to learn on.
