This course for the Poseidon Discovery MKVI CCR Rebreather is the entry level certification course for divers wishing to learn about or purchase the Poseidon Discovery MKVI CCR Rebreather. The objective of the course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for diving a Poseidon Discovery MKVI CCR Rebreather and to develop basic diving skills to a maximum of 60 feet using air as a diluent. No decompression diving is allowed on this course. Divers need to be Nitrox qualified (which can be added to this course).

How Does it Work?
The rebreather comes in two basic configurations: constant mix, (fO2) or a constant pressure (dosage or PO2) rebreathers. Both units do similar yet distinctly different functions. The rebreathers will take your exhausted breath which is rich in carbon dioxide, and absorb that gas through a scrubber device. The scrubber canister has an absorbent media, usually soda lime, that absorbs your exhaled gasses. This in turn creates a hydrothermic reaction and the gasses not only get scrubbed of carbon dioxide but become warm and wet. The rebreathers will then re-introduce oxygen enriched gas back into the breathing loop. Imagine bottom times of 2-5 hours or more without ever having to surface for a refill!
