ADAS Part 1 Restricted (Scientific)


Part 1 Restricted Course: $4,645 inc GST

This Part 1 Restricted Course – formerly known as Scientific – is for those who want to add to their leisure diving certification and undertake work in reasonably benign water, such as aquarium diving, archaeological investigations, scientific research or natural resource management.

The course is aimed at preparing recreational divers to work safely and effectively as part of a commercial diving team, in waters that involve negligible risk.  You will learn to dive using half masks and mouth held regulators, as well as full face masks with communications.  You’ll also learn some basic underwater skills such as sampling and survey tasks.  The training we provide is set up to replicate the work you’ll be doing once you’ve completed your training.  This will provide you with the best preparation possible for adding to your subsea skills.

Price: $4,645 inc GST
