Course Content:

The five day course is run in its entirety in an indoor environment and utilises the PDA’s 4msw deep training tank.  The first two days are split between class and workshop, where practical application of a wide variety of lifting equipment is carried out.  Diving commences on day three, with two full days spent carrying out various underwater slinging, load manipulating and assembly techniques in the PDA’s dedicated indoor training tank. On the final day delegates will be assessed against the core safety requirements taught during the course whilst completing a complex assembly/disassembly work programme. This will require them to demonstrate safe lifting techniques using equipment such as underwater lift bags, tirfors, chain and lever hoists, snatch blocks, dead man anchors, strops, shackles, etc. Those who demonstrate theoretical knowledge through examination and practical knowledge through assessment, will receive our Stage 1 Certificate of Training Competence, which is valid for three (3) years.
