Is there a class one can take for rebreather Scuba systems?

Yes, classes are unit specific. Meaning you are taught to drive a ford F-150 not an F-250 or an F-350 or a Chevy. While a lot of the skills and knowledge will transfer over so much of the training is on skills and emergency procedures that are specific to that unit.

Thanks,
Woody

Depends where you live. Near me, we have Northeast Scuba, where the owner is an instructor trainer for rebreathers. He trains on 3 or 4 different types of rebreathers, and if you want to look at rebreathers around here (central MA), that is the place to go.

Siscokid, how do you like your Optima? Any problems with it so far? I converted my Dolphin to the ExtendAir cartridges several years ago and love them, so if I were to ever get a different RB, the Optima would be on the list.

I do love my Optima, Dive right is having 2008 Tech Tour at Clear Springs Scuba Park, Tx Sep. 20-21. You can try the Optima out. In May I am going for my full trimex to 300ft Grand Cayman.
