Les plongeurs déjà certifiés en circuit ouvert commencent le cours «Intro to Rebreather - Adv», le cours principal de la formation CCR STDA. L'avancement est de suivre les cours CCR 1 et CCR 2 pour les sous-marins possédant déjà une certification en circuit ouvert.

STDA fournit également le cours de débutant sans aucune certification de circuit ouvert avec le programme 'Intro to Rebreather - Basic', à ce jour seulement avec aSCR Explorer Hollis.

For all the courses it's possible to attend the theory sessions through the web. In this way you can use your time at the best. Same thing if you want to come in Italy to attend your courses. You can do the theory lessons before your coming. Contact us for more info: info@stdahq.com

Currently 'STDA' considers as rebreather of reference the followings:

 

Why CCR rebreathers?

Theoretically talking, the Closed Circuit Rebreathers are considered the 'state of the art' of scuba diving. In the past, the development of these systems, faced many stops but in the new millenium, in particular with the huge improvement of electronics technology, the closed circuit rebreathers started to have a wide diffusion. The reasons were quite obvious from long time: using for deep and/or long dives a rare, strategic and always more expensive gas as helium, the most efficient system was and is without any doubt the CCR system. CCR have also an other big advantage: a CCR is really lighter (26-36kg) than OC double tanks (>40kg minimum) or a pSCR (>45kg minimum). Your back will thank you.

Moreover, during the years STDA has acquired evidence that CCR diving decrease the risk of DCS in divers affected by PFO.


Marco Valenti, STDA founder, believes in this system for many years. He's a CCR user since 2004. He's a CCR Instructor Trainer, developer and tester.

Keeping always in mind that is a different way of diving, generally more complex, CCR needs a different appproach than the open circuit. This means that it is not obvious that an experienced open circuit diver is automatically suitable for the use of a CCR. The history and the direct experience in training have brought out it clearly.

For these reasons, STDA stares at the training mainly on rebreather diving, with the goal to develop the use of rebreather also in recreational diving. What it's needed, it's the 'right' rebreather and training.

CCR 3 and CCR 3 Explorer courses (STDA™)

Targets

The 'CCR 3' and 'CCR 3 Explorer' courses aims to complete the training of the rebreather diver, following the limitations determinated by STDA. The structure of the program is the same of the previous courses: theory, confined water sessions and open water dives. 'CCR 3' and 'CCR 3 Explorer' programs are mainly focused on decompression theory and procedures (applying the Mnemonic Dive Planing STDA), rebreather failures and managements, bail-out procedures. With the positively conclusion of the course the diver will be able to plan and dive till 80 meters depth and with no depth limitations for Explorer program (the limit, if declared, is the one fixed by the rebreather manufacturer). The 'Explorer' program is an extension of 'CCR 3', that can be done only if the instructor evaluates the candidate suitable for the continuation.

Prerequisites ('CCR 3')

  • be certified 'CCR 2' or equivalent
  • for CCR3 Explorer, DPV and Wreck 1 STDA certifications (or equivalent) are requested
  • medical certificate not older than one year; recommended PFO examination (Patent foramen ovale)
  • minimum age: 21 years old
  • documented experience of at least 100 hours of dives with rebreather

Before the course start, the instructor could ask to do a rebreather dive to evaluate the level of training of the candidate.
