In order to be able to attend our ECA Surface Supplied course you will require the following: 

  • Log book evidence of dives undertaken at work at a range of specified depths within the two years prior to starting the course. Dives undertaken as part of a training course or recreational dives are not accepted.
  • A thorough knowledge of USN standard air and surface decompression schedules (revision 6) and British Navy line signals as well as the general principles of diving, as these will be assessed with no prior lectures. There will be a lecture on UK legislation.
  • A good understanding of English language as most of the course is carried out using voice communications.
  • An ‘in-date’ United Kingdom HSE Diving Medical Certificate (we also accept Norwegian, Dutch or Irish HSA approved Diving Medical Certificates, please contact us if you have a medical from these countries to ensure it is accepted);
    • Please note that if this is your first HSE UK Diving Medical, you must obtain an MA1 form completed by your own family doctor and take this to the doctor carrying out your HSE Medical.
    • If you have already passed an HSE UK Diving Medical, you must take your MA2 form – this is the front page of your previous HSE UK Diving Medical – as the doctor needs this to carry out your medical.
