The second PADI Tec CCR Instructor and Trainer programme was completed in Sydney, Australia this month. The courses were run by the designated Instructor Trainer Vikki Batten. Thanks to Southern Cross Divers & Barry Hallett who opened up his doors & provided great logistical support for the event.

During the course, participants gained recreational rebreather & technical CCR Instructor & Trainer credentials on the Poseidon MKVI & Ambient Pressure Diving Vision units.  The program was attended by both Instructor & Instructor Cross over course candidates. The Instructor & Trainer credentials that resulted from this program are a spread of PADI Rebreather Instructor, PADI Rebreather Instructor Trainer, PADI Tec 40 CCR Instructor & PADI Tec 40 CCR Instructor Trainer  with Tec 60 & Tec 100 CCR Instructor credentials to be activated shortly.

Now certified are Rubens Monaco (Australia), Pete Mesley (New Zealand), Yoshiaki Ikeda (Japan & Philippines), Mike Coughlan (New Zealand) and Alex Boulton (Australia). Congratulations to all new Instructors and Trainers. Please contact them directly for your training needs.
