HOLLIS PRISM 2 DIVER
Rebreathers are the future of diving. They allow for extended dive times (increased depths) and an interaction with the aquatic environment that cannot be witnessed while on open circuit systems.
Unlike open circuit, rebreathers recycle exhaled gas allowing for optimised use of the gas that is carried by the diver. Because of this, a minimal amount of bubbles is exhaled, thereby allowing hugely increased bottom times.
Rebreathers are the tool of choice for most modern technical divers since the oxygen supply is not affected by depth, thereby increasing duration while decreasing the amount of gas that needs to be carried. This training program has been developed for the use of the Prism 2 Closed Circuit Rebreather for entry level technical diving only, it is not a recreational rebreather program. The Prism 2 is a technical rebreather and the skills and knowledge contained within this program are designed with your safety in mind. The Prism 2 is a fully closed circuit Rebreather, ideal for exploring open ocean, cave, or wrecks. This unit can be electronically or manually controlled which means you choose how you want the loop PO2 maintained.

The Prism 2 program contains 3 manuals which, when combined with the 5 Generic Rebreather Diver manuals, delivers all the academic information you will need to safely dive your rebreather. During the program, divers are introduced to the benefits of the Prism 2 system utilising specific online Confined and Open Water manuals outlining specific safety skills needed to operate the Prism enjoyably and safely. RAID rebreather training is unique since it utilises an online training platform to deliver all required academic knowledge. RAID has developed an advanced dynamic quality assurance system which outlines all skills that need to be completed in order to safely dive the Prism 2 Rebreather. When these features are combined with instructor demonstrations, evaluations and feedback, RAID divers will be more than prepared for flying the Prism 2 autonomously.
In addition to the specific manuals, divers participating in the RAID Tech Rebreather Prism 2 program will need to participate in the Core Rebreather Knowledge Module. This module is vital for knowledge development as it discussed the essential information regarding rebreather design and use. The Core Rebreather Knowledge Module will auto download upon purchase of the RAID Tech Rebreather Prism 2 program.
Once certified, divers will be capable of diving to 40 metres/130 feet using air diluent. This program is not a decompression course however the CCR Deco 40 program may be bolted on if the participant meets the prerequisites.
Minimum age of 18 years.
Certified as Master Rescue Diver or equivalent.
RAID Deco 40 or equivalent, with 50 logged dives.
Divers already certified as rebreather divers may participate in the Prism 2 (Cross Over) Diver Specialty only as they are already proficient in rebreather diving and only need specific knowledge, skills and time on the Prism 2.
For prerequisites for participation on this course please register on the RAID website and download the RAID General Diving Standards.
