This course is designed specifically for divers working in aquariums or zoos. The course prepares divers for works in an occupational environment using SCUBA in confined waters to a depth of 20m.
The focus of the course is to prepare these divers to work in confined and open water environments undertaking research, underwater maintenance, cleaning, feeding and collection work associated with the running of aquariums and zoos.
PDTA have trained divers working at Aquarium and Zoo facilities Australia wide including Reef HQ Aquarium, Sunshine Coast Aquarium, SeaWorld, Sydney & Manly Aquariums, Taronga Zoo, Melbourne Zoo, Melbourne Aquarium & Auckland NZ Aquarium.
