To Start

How do I get started?

As with all of the technical diving education programmes at Aquasport you start with the training materials. A deposit of £100 is required to book your PSAI Inspiration CCR Diver. We will provide you with the PSAI CCR Diver manual for you to study prior to the start of your training.


What will I do?

During your programme you will cover the following:

  • The mechanics of an Inspiration CCR
  • Rebreather physiology
  • Gas consumption and decompression

You use recreational scuba equipment, with some minor additions to enhance your ability to deal with CCR diving conditions.

You will participate in at least one confined water training session and at least six open water training dives with your instructor, to a maximum depth of 40m.


How long will it take?

The PSAI CCR Diver takes place over a minimum of four days. The first day will concentrate on completing the theory sections from the PSAI manual and the Inspiration user manual.

You will also complete at least one confined water training session in our own site training pool.

The remaining six open water training dives will be scheduled to be completed over three further training days.

Where To?

Where can I go from here?

Once you have completed your PSAI Inspiration CCR Diver then the obvious next step is onto the PADI Tec Trimix Diver. If you do not yet have the required number of dives then discuss this with your instructor and see if these can be combined with the club diving schedule and arrange for a time to complete these.
