4 week HSE Scuba Course: £3,450 inc VAT*

This course is the minimum requirement to allow the use of Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) for commercial diving in inshore/inland waters.

Our SCUBA Course includes the use of traditional half mask and demand valve methods, but most dives you will undertake are completed in EXO26 and AGA full-face masks, with voice communications between you and the supervisor at all times. The HSE SCUBA certificate is suitable for divers who want to work in media, archaeological, inspection engineering, police, scientific or shellfish diving or indeed any inshore diving work.

You will learn how to execute searches and recover objects, rescue another diver in trouble and cope with your own emergency situations. You will experience at least 18 dives to a maximum depth of 30m (100ft).

Our HSE SCUBA Course also includes a range of underwater tasks as part of the training, so you’ll perform tasks underwater such as carrying out seabed surveys and grid searches, preparing you for the job of commercial diving, as well as teaching you the diving competencies.
