In accordance with our mission of promoting safety and education, the rebreather manufacturers that are permanent members of RESA have unanimously adopted these minimum training standards for all levels of rebreather training.
These are the minimum skills necessary for a diver to learn to use a rebreather safely at various levels of instruction across all models manufactured by RESA members. We believe training agencies and individual instructors must meet these standards when teaching students, and we encourage training agencies and individual instructors to exceed these levels.
If a particular training agency's minimum standards fall below the manufacturers' minimum standards, the manufacturers' minimum standards supersede the training agency standards. The RESA standards are the standard in the industry for the safe use of the RESA manufacturers' products.
We encourage all students and divers to familiarize themselves with the RESA standards, and to achieve these standards in their education and diving practices."
