Rebreather courses
Rebreathers are often seen as the pinacle of scuba diving, and diving one is often a goal that divers set for themselves. GUE see Rebreathers as powerful tools for exploration diving and have a long history with Rebreathers, starting with units such as the PVR-BASC (or fridge) and the Halcyon RB-80. Over the last few years GUE exploration divers and instructors have been using the JJ-CCR to great effect on deep water projects around the world.

The GUE CCR Level 1 class takes the skills and experience gained through the GUE Technical Diver Level 1 class and introduces divers to basic rebreather technologies, cultivating diver proficiency in the use of GUE approved rebreather configurations.
