IT TAKES A VILLAGE

 

For the last 13 years, Add Helium has remained the first and only Full-Time rebreather facility. But what does that mean for the rebreather student traveling long distances intending to find the best training experience?

 

We know that others cannot possibly provide the same level and standard of services without the resources that we have accessible for our clients. Add Helium has made it its goal to create the most successful training experience for clients and we constantly improve upon it.

 

A team of trained professionals, a state-of-the-art facility and a winning system developed from years of experience provide:

  1. Professional advice and timely quotes
  2. Highly trained, full-time rebreather instructors
  3. A rebreather for rent for training
  4. Weekly classes
  5. Return to class for free program *
  6. Advanced training
  7. Clean, comfortable class rooms with advanced A-V systems dedicated for education
  8. Concierge service to help with all travel arrangements
  9. Customer service representative managing all schedules, rentals, paperwork, equipment
  10. On-site service department to service all equipment prior to and during class
  11. On-site parts department to supply gear, rebreather parts and consumables during class
  12. On-site mixed-gas fill system
  13. Group trips dedicated to rebreathers only

 

We do not train in a quarry or other poor visibility waters that are unsuitable for learning  and do not provide experience for real diving. Florida’s East Coast diving is usually in warmer waters providing good conditions year-round than elsewhere in the United States.

 

Compare these resources to the usual “one-man band” and it is clear why Add Helium is the industry leader.

 

*Once you complete a specific class with Add Helium, you may return and take the same class over again for free. This improves retention and also acts as a refresher for those who need it.

Logbook

As the Add Helium dive team began to explore deeper and further, they were not satisfied with the “status quo” of information. Training agencies and industry experts clearly disseminated outdated and unsubstantiated information.

We all need information based on valid research to achieve optimal dives.

The information you seek, the information we all seek, is here on our site – take a peek and improve your dives.

Ever wondered how we learn and how we retain what we learned? Have you noticed that you will retain less than 100% of the material presented? Furthermore, because you zone out, get distracted, or do not comprehend, you are not even cognizant of the things you see and hear during the class. Every time a,

Why pockets?

Jan 8th, 2018 by admin in Business ,Rebreather Diving

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. However, we bring some items “just in case”. Many of these items could present an entanglement issue if stored externally. Pockets are often the best place to store these items. For example, spare masks, gloves, secondary cutting

Some of the participants from last year’s event decided to return for another round thus giving the group a nice mix of new and old acquaintances. This year we had Inspirations, rEvos, Megalodons a
