Equipment and Industry Skills Training


It is a fact that PDA graduates are well prepared for the working life that lies ahead. Through our personal experience of what newly qualified divers generally lacked in the past, we’ve ensured that the right training and equipment is provided. The fantastic free equipment and additional subsea skills training that is included in several of our course packages is arguably the best available and ensures that our newly qualified divers are ready for their first jobsite!

Delegates who successfully complete our Premier Career Package will take away essential equipment items and will have undergone an industry relevant skills training programme which ensures they are fully prepared for immediate employment.
