Feedback from a recent Part Three Graduate

I really enjoyed my experience training at CDA, beauty point, Tasmania. The trainers and staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. The Commercial Diving courses are well put together with lots of hands-on experience. If you were considering this line of work, I would definitely consider undertaking the training here. The facility, equipment and training that is offered and available to students is nothing short of amazing. The Saturation barge is an experience within its self. I'd doubt you'd get this type of experience anywhere else in the southern hemisphere. I'd like to thank thank them for delivering a strong, realistic program for preparing students (us) for the industry. Many thanks and Cheers.

Commercial Diving supervisor feedback

"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"
