ADAS PART 1 TRAINING
Certificate IV in Hyperbaric Operations (Occupational SCUBA to 30 metres)
This is the entry-level occupational (commercial) qualification. The training is conducted using self contained, underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA) configured to meet the appropriate occupational diving standard.
This qualification will allow the holder to undertake commercial scuba operations up to a maximum depth of 30 metres. The ADAS approved course is of four weeks duration and, normally runs five days a week, Monday to Friday. We run our ADAS Part 1 courses directly before a ADAS Part 2 course, enabling you to undertake them both together for a reduced price.
During training the candidate will learn a variety of search techniques, use simple hand-tools, conduct surveys both visual and video, learn how to use life-line and voice communications. The majority of the training is conducted using Full Face Masks (FFMs) with voice communications fitted. Reserve air systems are fitted to the scuba equipment and, training in these important back up systems will be undertaken. Other emergency rescue techniques will also be taught. Training in nil visibility diving techniques is also an important part of this course.
To participate in this course you need to be at least 18 years of age, be able to swim 200m unassisted, have a recreational diving certification (such as PADI), and pass a Commercial Diving Medical. We will supply all students with the necessary information for the dive medical upon enrolment. You will also need to have a DAN Oxygen Providers certificate, and a Senior First Aid - both of which can be completed with us during your course.
