Rebreather Dive Instructor

Closed Circuit Rebreathers (CCR’s) have revolutionised recreational and technical diving over the last few years offering tremendous advantages for all types of diving. As with technical diving, rigorous instructor training is essential if CCR users are to be taught how to use this equipment safely and efficiently. At Rubicon Diving we provide rebreather instructor training programmes on a wide range of different closed circuit rebreathers. Our rebreather instructor training programmes are run under the ANDI system of training and cover the use of CCR systems from 40 to 100 metres with unlimited decompression and the use of Tri-Mix gases.

ANDI Rebreather Instructor Training at Rubicon Diving

Rubicon Diving is the only ANDI instructor training centre in Spain and we are also a member of the International Association of Rebreather Trainers (IART). Rubicon Diving has one of widest selections of Closed Circuit Rebreathers in Europe and we can provide instructor training on the following systems; rEvo 2 and 3, AP Evolution and Inspiration, Megalodon and COPIS, JJCCR and KISS.
As part of our commitment to rebreather and technical training we have a dedicated area for this training that includes teaching rooms, equipment storage space and assembly areas as well as a separate room for the storage and filling oxygen and tri-mix gases.

Rebreathers are available for hire at a cost of €300 per course.
