Dealers with rental units to try
Rebreather training classes are typically 5-6 days long, although sometimes longer depending on a number of factors, including the training agency, your local conditions, your instructor, and your ability to satisfy the class standards.
KISS Rebreathers is a member of the Rebreather Education and Safety Association (RESA,) whose training standards stipulate that an entry level rebreather class must be a minimum of 40 hours in length, with no less than 7 dives.
Training can be done prior to purchasing a unit or in conjunction with purchasing one. Students who wish to take the class without buying a rebreather may make arrangements for a rental rebreather with their instructor. (Not every instructor has rentals available.) Those who purchase a unit prior to training will receive their unit in non-operating condition. A key component, usually the manual addition valve, is missing, and sent directly to your instructor.
KISS rebreather courses are taught through the following training agencies:
Please be sure to check with the respective agency's website to ensure the instructor is in current teaching status.
