Feedback from a recent CDA graduate

"I have just recently finished my ADAS Part 3 at the Commercial Dive Academy, one of the biggest things a noticed was that students even from Part 1 and 2 were being trained exactly as we would if we were working on an offshore and onshore worksite. I think this is a huge help for anyone who would be starting new into the industry or continuing, something I feel I missed out from previous training elsewhere. On top of the high quality of training and experienced staff I appreciated the help I was given to find work afterwards.

Thanks guys, I’ll be back for Part 4 one day

Michael Cook Diving Supervisor CDA

“I’m part way through my trainee supervisors course. The one thing I was fearful about was the physics component. I’ve spent a lot of long nights trying to get my head around all the formulae needed. Today in a matter of hours I have had everything explained in such a way that I’m confident that I’ll pass. Best teachers teaching best practice. Don’t waste your time going anywhere else.”
