Established initially to safeguard commercial divers working in the harsh conditions of the United Kingdom’s offshore oil and gas fields, the Health and Safety Executives Diving Division quickly developed an unparalleled reputation for ensuring diver safety on the worksite. As such, the HSE accredited Commercial Diving Courses run by this training academy remain amongst the very best available.
We are one of the most modern diver training schools in the world with a unique link to the diving industry through our ADC accredited sister company Shearwater Marine Services, one of the UK’s largest marine civil engineering diving contractors. This vital interface with the commercial diving world allows our delegates to experience an unrivalled industry relevant training programme that teaches essential skills in a real world environment.
