Rebreather Diver Training

All New SSI Rebreather Certification It’s Easy

Dolphin  PoseidonKISS PIC

SSI has introduced the all new Poseidon and KISS CCR Rebreather Programs….no need to be certified for scuba…..a new diver can be certified only to dive on the Poseidon MkVI rebreather.  Imagine diving a practically automatic rebreather….it does most of it’s own system check….the diver can only add air or bail out onto scuba…It is lighter than your existing scuba system and easier to learn to dive with……

Or move into the KISS Rebreathers….for the more astute diver. This is a fully manual system that allows the diver to control the entire system without needing to depend on electronics underwater.


All New KISS Spirit CCR Program. The KISS Spirit is designed to take the CCR Diver to the next level of diving. No electronics and fully manual CCR, the rebreather has the best trim and work of breathing than any other unit in the industry…. click the pix above to see the KISS unit assembly.

It automatically adjusts to the diver and does most of the pre-dive system checks for the diver…not all…just most!

There’s only two things the diver can do underwater with the units…

Dive or switch to scuba and bailout

There are no manual addition valves…no PO2’s to chase…just dive like you are on scuba and …..

Enjoy warm, wet breathing gas….lighter system than scuba….up to four hours of extended dive time per dive…less nitrogen loading….

How Does it Work?


The rebreather comes in two basic configurations: constant mix, (fO2) or a constant pressure (dosage or PO2) rebreathers. Both units do similar yet distinctly different functions. The rebreathers will take your exhausted breath which is rich in carbon dioxide, and absorb that gas through a scrubber device. The scrubber canister has an absorbent media, usually soda lime, that absorbs your exhaled gasses. This in turn  creates a hydrothermic reaction and the gasses not only get scrubbed of carbon dioxide but become warm and wet. The rebreathers will then re-introduce oxygen enriched gas back into the breathing loop. Imagine bottom times of 2-5 hours or more without ever having to surface for a refill!
