The RTC has been formed to allow leading training agencies that offer rebreather training to work together and exchange information. The mission of the RTC is to promote the safe use of rebreathers by creating industry agreed training standards and operational protocols.

The RTC expects to work closely with the Rebreather Education and Safety Association (RESA) so that training organizations and manufacturers can cooperate for the benefit of rebreather divers globally.
