Poseidon MKVI CCR Training

For divers wishing to utilize a Discovery Poseidon MKVI Rebreather (CCR) for air diluents diving this is the entry level certification course.



The objective of the course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for diving with a Discovery Poseidon MKVI CCR and to
develop basic diving skills to a maximum of 30 meters/100 feet using air as a diluent. No decompression diving is allowed on this course.


The skills include:

  • Unit buildup
  • Intact breathing loop verification
  • Electronic self-test
  • Emergency procedures
  • Proper maintenance of the unit


Recreational closed circuit rebreather diving allows extended dive times and simplified dive preparation and planning, as compared to closed circuit technical rebreather divers.
Recreational rebreather diving is limited to 30 meters/100ft with no-stop time and has the option for the immediate bail out to open circuit scuba carried on board the unit.


The benefits of diving a closed circuit rebreather over traditional open circuit scuba includes:

  • Longer dive times with extended gas consumption and longer no decompression limits.
  • Less noise, no bubbles and the ability to become a part of the aquatic realm, not just an observer.
  • Fish and other creatures will come close to check you out!
  • More enhanced photos and videos of aquatic life as you can now get much closer to your subjects.
  • Stay warmer longer as less body heat is exhaled.
  • Divers who do not want to go Tec but want the benefits of extended times underwater.
  • A foundation for Tec rebreather training.
