IART CCR LEVEL 1 COURSE – 40 meters
During Level I training the participant develops the necessary diving skills, techniques and knowledge required to dive responsibly with a closed circuit rebreather within recreational no-decompression stop limits. In addition to this the user will learn to correctly carry out routine cleaning and maintenance of the unit.
After successful completion, the IART certification will entitle the participant to both dive the model of rebreather that was used during the course and buy a unit or spare parts from the manufacturer.
Closed Circuit Rebreather Diver Level 1 (CCR Level I) – No Decompression Stop, Air Diluent diving
Course objective IART Level 1 Course:
This course trains the participant in the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary for safe and responsible diving with the JJ-CCR and Megalodon closed circuit Rebreather within no-stop times and recreational depth limits. After successful completion the participant may purchase or rent a JJ or Megalodon CCR.
Student Prerequisites IART CCR Course Level 1:
- Minimum 50 logged dives
- Advanced Open Water or equivalent qualification
- Nitrox Diver certification
- valid diving medical
Course content/duration IART CCR Course Level 1:
All theoretical and practical aspects of diving with the JJ-CCR and Megalodon as described in the IART manual. Course duration, after preparatory home-study of the manual, is generally 4-5 days. In addition to theory development, practical training in pool/confined water and in open water with not less than 300 minutes in-water time on the JJ-CCR and Megalodon CCR. The instructor : student ratio is not permitted to exceed 1.2.
IART CCR manual level I, Air/Nitrox tables, NOAA exposure tables, IART flash-cards and IART Instructor presentation materials.
Mandatory equipment IART CCR Course Level 1:
Complete diving equipment suitable to the environment, bail-out cylinder and regulator with min. 600 litres supply, slate and pencil depth gauge and timer or dive computer.
Limits IART CCR Course Level 1:
- Maximum depth for pool/confined water: 5m,
- Open water dive 1: max. 10m,
- Open water dives 2 – 4: min. 10m – max 20m.
- Open water dives 5 – 6: min. 15m – max 30m.
No-decompression CCR dives planned to remain within limits of O/C nitrox tables.
All skills contained in the IART CCR level 1 manual must be taught and performed according to the required standards.
Requirements for certification:
Following completion of the theory lessons a written test must be passed. After successful demonstration of all required practical diving skills the certification is documented by the issue of a certificate and a positive identification card (PIC). In accordance with IART quality control, both the participant and instructor must sign the appropriate training protocol. The Instructor must retain this protocol with the student’s other training documents.
