CCR Cave Diving "Almost Simplified Manual"

This manual realized as a CCR cave instructor that there is a void of information available to the new CCR cave diver specifically in regards to dive planning. I feel that it is important for a student to be armed with information before attending a class. This book is an attempt to help the upcoming CCR cave diver get the most out of their class. Like my previous "CCR Simplified" manuals the goal is to put in simple words how to use the rebreather in the particular application, in this case the cave environment. The information in the manual is presented in an easy to read format and can be used in conjunction with any agency specific material. It is over 160 high quality full color pages. Contact Curt for purchase.

CCR Simplified Manual (MOD 1)

This manual explains in simple terms everything a new rebreather diver wants to know. It is basically a "how" to guide for diving and planning dives on a CCR. The manual is presented in a manor that will allow the information to be applied to any rebreather; with unit specific appendices for some of the most common units on the market. It also will arm the future rebreather purchaser with some of the questions they need to know before buying a CCR. The manual is designed to be used by students before they take their CCR class. In doing this the student will get more out of their class and the instructor will have better prepared students a "win win situation" for the whole rebreather community. Finally this manual is a great guide for the open circuit diver who dives regularly with rebreather divers. The information in the manual is presented in an easy to read format and can be used in conjunction with any agency specific material. It is over 300 high quality full color pages. Contact Curt for purchase.
