The Occupational SCUBA to 30m qualification (Part 1) is the first level of certification as a commercial diver. This course is a pre requisite for Part 2 (Occupational SSBA to 30m) and the theory component of this course explains to the student the role of a commercial diver allowing them to better understand the anatomy, physiology, physics and diving maladies related to occupational diving.
This qualification is most suited to divers conducting occupational dives for photography, media and inspection services. The qualification limits the diver to using hand tools or conducting inspections in no decompression dives with direct access to the surface. The diver cannot operate surface controlled power tools, or dive in operations where the use of overhead lifting or other similar activities is required. This qualification also includes the use of nitrox and has a nitrox endorsement as well as Kirby Morgan Helmet and Bandmask Operators Certifications.
