Learning your next rebreather

For those already rebreather certified, there are many reasons to learn another rebreather. Fortunately, this transition requires far less work than your initial rebreather certification. In most cases, this class can be completed in 2-3 days. Add Helium offers cross-over training on the following rebreathers – rEvo, Megalodon, Copis Megalodon, Pathfinder, Sentinel, Inspiration, Evolution, Titan, Hollis Prism, Hollis Explorer, Kiss Classic, Kiss Orca Spirit, Kiss Sidekick, Optima, Poseidon, Hammerhead Flex Extreme.

 

For those flying in from out of town, a rental car will be needed to transport you and your dive gear from one site to another. Rental cylinders are available to rent from Add Helium and many rental packages are available. Our Class Concierge will help you find lodging and other information you require.
