Take a rebreather class

The best way to learn about rebreathers is to take a class. There is simply no substitution for this. Add Helium offers rental rebreathers so you can discover the thrill of rebreather diving, while earning your first certification at the same time. No previous experience is required, so what are you waiting for?


Learn another rebreather

Any certified rebreather diver understands, it is hard not to have a wandering eye. No matter how much we love our present rebreather, we all wonder what those other rebreathers are really like…we just can’t help it! With the Add Helium rental rebreather program, it’s all too easy. Give us a couple of days and you’ll be certified to dive another rebreather.


Advanced rebreather education

Earn your advanced certifications and develop your rebreather education any time of the year. Our team of full time expert instructors offer Trimix diving, Cave diving and Wreck diving so you may enjoy the full potential of your rebreather.


Advanced Individual Training (AIT)

Certification classes allow us to develop our first levels of understanding. Gaining the concepts that lead you to endless self-development requires a mentor. To that end, Add Helium’s team of expert instructors offers the AIT program. AIT begins where your certification class left off. Challenging you to develop so you can freely explore the underwater world with greater comfort and fewer limits.


Become a professional CCR diver

If you wish to become a professional rebreather instructor, we can help you reach your goals. Training with live students is often difficult to arrange. With Add Helium, we make it easy because we have live student classes going on every week. Earning your instructor certification has never been easier. Add Helium offers instructor and instructor training education at every level.

Rent First!Rent First!

Discover the world of rebreather diving by renting one! As the only facility to offer a full line of rebreathers to rent for training, Add Helium makes it easy.  Whether you are trying a rebreather for the first time or have interest in your next rebreather, renting makes great sense. With classes going on every week, why not sign up for a class today?


Concierge service

Most people agree, it’s the details that make the difference. Our world-class facility offers world-class service! Add Helium is pleased to offer your own concierge to help you navigate the details for a class or dive trip.

Maggie, your concierge, will manage your travel arrangements, rental equipment needs and any purchases to ensure that everything goes according to plan. Should you be traveling with non-divers, Maggie will have non-diving activities available for them.

Learning for adults

Tired of taking your class in the dive shop stockroom? It’s similar to “flying coach while paying for business class seats”. Serious training requires a serious classroom.

Add Helium’s Training Center features spacious, state-of-the-art, rebreather lecture rooms. Each student has a dedicated rebreather workbench along with a comfortable desk. Lecture rooms are equipped with Projectors, Wi-Fi, Live Streaming and Apple TV. We offer presentations and information sharing unlike anyone. If you never expected this before, maybe it’s time you did.


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.
