AP Inspiration CLASSIC CCR Level 1 English

The APD INSPIRATION CLASSIC is a fully-closed electronically controlled rebreather operating with a voting logic ppO2 control system and dual controllers. The unit has multiple redundant and manual override systems on board. It has a proven track record since its launch in 1988 and has been used on many major diving expeditions effectively.

The technology behind a CCR is more demanding on the diver than with open circuit equipment. It offers many more options to the diver to deal with problems if they should occur. For this reason a comprehensive, dedicated training is essential.

The IART unit-specific user course, combined with the unit specific IART manual, will prepare you with the knowledge and skills needed to safely dive the INSPIRATION CLASSIC CCR within no-decompression limits to a maximum depth of 40m.
