This is an intensive eight weeks long commercial diving training programme, that combines HSE SCUBA and Surface Supplied into a single cheaper package. On completion this course, graduates can enter a new career as an inshore marine construction diver, typically working in shallower depth ranges than their offshore counterparts on marine construction projects. “Civils Divers” typically work on diving contracts in docks, harbours, dams and canals.

During training delegates will undertake industry relevant working tasks, using a variety of underwater hydraulic and pneumatic powered tools such as drills, breakers, disc cutters, chainsaws and suction dredges. Using underwater tools in job realistic scenarios is greatly beneficial for work type experience, and will enhance employment opportunities with a potential employer. Included within this package is our UXO Investigation and Identification Safety Awareness Course, a 2 day programme that was developed to teach safety critical inspection and identification techniques for underwater UXO surveys using divers. This section of the course provides detailed instruction on the use of diver hand operated magnetometers for locating and measuring suspicious objects.

The PDA is owned by a very successful diving company, and our graduates have a long established reputation as having industry relevant skills that are immediately transferable to their first worksite. All Inshore Career Package graduates are qualified to work up to 50msw depths here in the UK, and are eligible to undertake the HSE Wet-Bell Top-Up course anytime in the future.
