The ADAS Occupational SCUBA to 30m qualification (Part 1) is the first level of certification as a commercial diver. This course is a prerequisite for ADAS 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 scientific, photography, media and inspection services.

ADAS Occupational SSBA to 30m (Part 2) covers the training activities and competencies required for accreditation of divers to work safely and competently using surface supplied breathing apparatus (SSBA) to depths of up to 30m.
This is the second level of accreditation as an occupational diver and it covers Occupational Onshore Air Diving.

This is a good level to complete and start an onshore construction diving career. It is equivalent to HSE Part 3 (UK). For more information, please visit the ADAS Occupational SSBA to 30m Part 2 page.
