    Hi
    Sorry if I misread it but you are diving RB to 75 with air dil ? Yes, why not, I know, I did it in warm tropical water because no He was available and it was my personal choice :)
    But frankly, the beauty of RB is to be able to use TX on the cheap... So what is the point of a COURSE with air dil to 75m. For me it is a non-sense...

    I think he meant he was able to go straight from air dil to a 75m mix ticket?

    oops indeed, it seems I read it to fast but when I heard PSAI, (stupid) "narcosis management" courses come to my mind and did an assimilation... My bad
    Or do they have "narcosis management" courses for the RB curriculum?!

    Ha ha yes quite. Went from 45mtr air dil deco to 75mtr mix deco.

    I wouldn't even dive 75mtr on air on a single 15.

    Re: PSAI and REVO

    The book used in my revo class was not from the agency.

    So - that being said - has the original question been answered? Are there any PSAI instructors teaching REVO on CCR?

    Sure, you can buy one from Wakulla and have it drop shipped to the Fort Lauderdale guys... the most important thing is you receive the training from someone you trust.

    It's been a few years since I was a paid up PSAI instructor so I may be completely wrong on this one for the USA but I'm certain there are none in Europe.

    Vanny,
    The Qualification doesn't have to be unit specific (subject to agency guidelines), but the current HSE/ACOPS recommendations are that the instructor delivering the course should be diving the same unit as the students.
    So the agency could still offer a non unit specific course but the instructor and all students would need to all be on the same unit.

And there was no reason the qualification it's self could not be like the old IANTD Trimix qualifications which were non unit specific and were then validated by a Mod 1 card for the unit you were diving
