ADAS SSBA to 30M (Part 2 Aquaculture)

Course Overview:

To meet legislative requirements of the Australia Seafood Industry, ADAS has introduced this Aquaculture course SSBA to 30M. This Certificate offers training needed for diving operations in the seafood industry, such as; Tuna, Salmon and various other fish farming operations. This ADAS Certificate is a great addition to any commercial divers CV.

This course combines theory from Part 1 and equipment theory from Part 2 and a practical component consisting of an expanded number of relatively short SSBA dives focussed on the limited set of Aquaculture skills.

The ADAS Aquaculture course also meets the requirements of the diving units of competency of theSeafood Industry Training Package SF111 and can therefore be used to meet the legislative need for accredited diver training for the salmon farming industry in Tasmania and South Australia. The course also meets the needs of accredited training for the Queensland Aquaculture industry, in particular the Beche De Mer and Cray fishing sectors in the Torres Strait.

Successful completion of this course results in the partial following Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification: Certificate IV in Hyperbaric Operations (Seafood industry diving) National Qualification Code: 10133NAT awarded by ADAS, RTO number 88104
