    Question Courses

    Hello!!

    As I am an absolute beginner in rebreathing (only one SCR dive so far...), I'd like to ask the experts:
    My experience so far: scuba and nitrox instructor with 2200+ dives. I'd like to begin with rebreathers - but which one??? And how many courses? First SCR and the CCR? Or first Trimix, then CCR? Or just straight for CCR?
    I tried hard to find some info on the web, but it appears that nobody in or around Vancouver offers any courses Any idea???

    So... please HELP!!!! :)

    Run a search here on that topic. I recall a thread about this within just the last two months or less. It had to do with doing Trimix or CCR first.

    There is a couple of people around BC. Bruce Partridge is in Vancouver and there ia Bill Colart on Vancouver Island. We have a RB comunity that it growing very rapidly. In our little community here we have Evolution, 2 X Inspiration, 2 X CCR Dolphins, Hammerhead Inspiration, and a Meg. I'm sure that that are more up Island.

    People have told me to do OC trimix before CCR trimix. The reason is that you'll better appreciate the cost savings of trimix on CCR if you've bubbled away $$$ of helium on OC! :D
