Upgrade ADAS Part 1 to Part 2


4 week upgrade ADAS Part 1 to Part 2: $7,430 inc GST

This four week course combines practical, hands-on training with classroom-based assessments.  This course will train you to use surface supplied diving equipment, to help advance your commercial diving career.

As well as training you in the use of surface supplied equipment, you will also be trained in important tools and skills underwater – all of which will provide you with valuable experience for your new career.  You’ll learn how to use underwater stills and video cameras for a survey report, as well as gaining experience of using a lifting bag and impact wrench, a hydraulic drill at depth, a jack hammer, a hydraulic chain saw and an angle grinder.

You will learn underwater welding/ oxy arc cutting techniques, which are vital subsea construction skills to have once you’re working.  You will have to plan, risk assess and participate in a major construction task using a range of specified tools, giving you a strong understanding of the task at hand from start to finish.  You will also participate in night dives, diver rescues and zero visibility dives.

Throughout the course, the tools and skills you learn will replicate the work you will be doing once you’ve completed your training. Our courses are tailored to reproduce the working practices of industry as closely as possible, so you’ll be well-prepared for your new career.
