Become a Rebreather Diver

For the more demanding diver, the entry-level rebreather course for the SF2 eCCR system is available at KTD Malta.

On this course you will learn about the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures for rebreather diving on this specific system. Moreover you'll learn the basic eCCR dive skills you will need to the max. depth of 30 metres / 100 ft while using air as the diluent. No decompression diving during this course!

We highly recommend purchasing and owning your rebreather. However, we understand you might wish to try the system out before purchasing your own unit. It is possible to rent the rebreather when needed to use on your course.
