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
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.”
