The six weeks long Professional Diver Tenders Course has been developed to provide non-diving personnel with a comprehensive training and assessment based programme, which will allow them to enter the diving industry as a qualified commercial diver’s tender. Recent revisions to the HSE Diving ACOP makes it clear that a five man dive team is the absolute minimum required for normal operations and diver tenders are commonly used to bring the team size up to the required legal standard. However unless the tender is a qualified diver to the level of the operation taking place, then he will have to prove his competence to undertake this role by other means. This course provides the third party training that is required to satisfy proof of competence, using SCUBA, and surface supplied diving equipment to offshore deep water standards.
Included within the syllabus is the Kirby Morgan helmet band-mask maintenance course, which allows qualified diver tenders to conduct daily, weekly and monthly servicing and corrective repairs on Kirby Morgan helmets and band masks.
PDA Professional Diver Tender graduates that return to undertake a commercial diving training package within a 3 year period, will be credited by the value of the Professional Tenders Course against that course package.
