Certificate in SSBA Construction Diving to 50M - Level 5

ADAS Occupational Deep SSBA Part 3

What will I learn?

The course builds on the skills and knowledge learnt in the Level 4 qualification and builds on the ADAS Occupational SSBA Diver (Part 2). In this course we focus on both onshore and offshore diving to 50m.

The onshore part of the course enables diving operations in deep lakes, dams, and onshore salvage such as the recent shipwreck "Rena".

The offshore part of the course focuses on the diving skills you’ll need on the job with current industry practices being taught including operation of wet bells, hot water suits, fitting flanges, pipelines, and surface decompression with oxygen. The course is recognised by the International Maritime Contractors Association enabling graduates to work across the globe.

The Level 5 course also includes a Hyperbaric Chamber Operators Certificate and the Diver Medic Technician course, an advanced first aid course. As far as we are aware we are the only Commercial Dive School in the World offering this comprehensive package which gives you a head start in the offshore diving industry.
