    I think it was like total basic (entry level) CCR trainings ever done since 1996 was around 12000.
    (this does not mean 12000 active CCR divers, that will probably be quite less)

    I think I mentioned this in my post? Mine is on a PADI standard plastic format. use it on every dive. But I found out that I really wanted to do one by my self as the PADI version only mention; build the unit as per manufacturers guidelines.

    30,000 certifications and 15,000 rebreather divers means the average Rebreather diver has 2 different units or at least 2 different CCR certifications. That sounds too high as an average.

    Oh wait....... I've got 4. Never mind.

    Re: Rf3

    thanks for the summary, so the primary causes of rebreather fatalities were more or less errors in judgement and errors in operation? with less than <1% attributable to equipment failures?

    it would be interesting to see how they classified errors in equipment vs equipment failures. in safety science this can be a very fine line - i.e. better equipment design should minimize problems with equipment that occur from how the operator interacts with the equipment. take for example a fatality that occurs from some error in unit assembly. i wonder if they would classify that as a "error in equipment" (i.e. operator error in using equipment)? the goal of good safety design should be to minimize the opportunity for such errors to occur. where you draw the distinction can be a fine line.
