PADI Rebreather Qualifier Course Overview
The PADI Rebreather Qualifier course is simply a crossover to an additional unit. Since rebreather units have different operation and techniques, it's important to get your certification on the specific rebreather that you're diving. With the PADI Rebreather Qualifier course, you'll qualify to dive one of the units listed below.
This is a 2-day course with 4 dives with a maximum depth of 30m.
PADI Rebreather Qualifier:
As a PADI Rebreather Diver or Advanced Rebreather Diver you qualify to dive on a specific Type R rebreather. To dive on a different rebreather, you must qualify on that unit. Fortunately, there is no need to take another complete PADI Rebreather Diver or Advanced Rebreather Diver course, you can simply enroll in a PADI Rebreather Qualifier program.
During the qualifier program, you’ll focus on the new rebreather – assembly, predive checks, disassembly and unique aspects of diving it versus other rebreathers you’ve qualified to use. When you complete the program, you earn a new certification card – either PADI Rebreather Diver or Advanced Rebreather Diver (whatever your level is) – which identifies the new model.
The cost of this course varies depending on which rebreather you'd like to learn on.
