Semiclosed Rebreather

The PADI Semiclosed Rebreather Course

If novelty and diving quietly appeal to to you, then try the Semiclosed Rebreather course.

The Fun Part

The main feature of a semiclosed rebreather is the reduced bubbles and silence it offers, which allows you to get closer to shy wildlife.

What You Learn

Through the Semiclosed Rebreather Specialty course you learn the special procedures for semiclosed rebreather scuba diving. This includes special dive planning, organization, procedures and potential hazards, many of which differ significantly from conventional (open circuit) scuba.

It specifically focuses on the features, accessories, maintenance and proper use of the Draeger Semi-closed Rebreather. You make at least one confined water dive and at least three open water dives to learn:

  • Advantages and disadvantages of the rebreather
  • Assembly, disassembly and maintenance
  • Dive planning and emergency procedures with semiclosed rebreathers
