Who is the course for?
The ADAS part two courses is for the diver who wants to work in Aquaculture or onshore Civil work that does not require and ADAS part three ticket.
The ticket allows divers to work in non-decompression conditions where depths will not exceed 30 metres. This means for noncomplex and shallow onshore dive sites the ticket is a minimum requirement.
Divers with the ADAS part two ticket are able to use a huge range of power tools, including hydraulic and pneumatics as well as welding and Broco thermic cutting underwater.
ADAS part two is also a pre-requisite for our ADAS part three course, which allows divers to earn considerably more money, work offshore and work onshore in more complex roles such as deep damns or salvage.
To enrol in our ADAS part two (Surface Supplied Air to 30 M) course you must first have completed our ADAS part one or ADAS Aquaculture course. Your ADAS tickets need to be current. For most students going directly from ADAS part one, this is easily met!
To meet the AS/NZS 2299.1 and ADAS requirements anyone who joins a course at CDA, or any other ADAS school is required to have a current first aid, 02 provider and CPR certification.
in general if the card has first aid on it, and the course was about a day long. it is likely this will be accepted. though if you are not sure if your first aid ticket is accepted, you can contact us any time to find out.

Before we can allow anyone to dive, they must hold an occupational dive medical. I am sure you have AS/NZS 2299.1 memorised now, and you guessed right. your medical, needs to be in accordance with this standard.
Because of this, the doctor who assesses you for medical fitness is required to be trained in hyperbaric medicine and certified as an occupational diving doctor.
