CCR Advanced Wreck Diver

The CCR Advanced Wreck Diver class will teach students how to plan and conduct penetration dives in an overhead wreck environment. This class is available to divers who are certified on the following units – rEvo, Megalodon, Sentinel, Inspiration, Evolution, Titan, Hollis Prism, KISS rebreathers, or Optima.

Class Schedule 

Classes are not based not in hours but in objectives. The student must master all skills and objectives of the class. Some classes will take longer than others in this regard. The following is a sample class schedule, which may be longer (if needed) to master the objectives. Itinerary, training location, class schedule or times may also vary due to weather.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the training day generally begins at 8:30 am and ends at 5:00 pm.

Students must show up on Day 1 with their unit built, and ready to dive. No exceptions. Students who arrive on Day 1 with an un-assembled unit will be considered not prepared to begin class.

During a dive, clipping gear to D-rings provides easy access to items we use most often. Reels, lights, primary SMB’s and line arrows are good examples of items we use often on a dive.

For example, spare masks, gloves, secondary cutting
