The Occupational SCUBA to 30m qualification (Part 1) is the first level of certification as a commercial diver. This course is a prerequisite 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 scientific, photography, media and inspection services. For more information, please visit the ADAS Occupational SCUBA Part 1 page.
Occupational SSBA (to 30m) 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. Divers certified in this level are competent in the use of surface supplied breathing apparatus, cutting and welding equipment, pneumatic and hydraulic tools, digital video, still photography, and ultrasonic and non-destructive testing equipment.
This qualification also includes the use of nitrox and has a nitrox endorsement as well as Kirby Morgan Helmet and Band Mask Operators Certifications. 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.
