Recognised PrioR learning
There are two levels of recognition offered at CDA for Those divers with lots of experience. The first is RPL, this is for individuals with at least two years experience. these divers must have met certain dive requirements but do not need the varied construction experience of AN RPL EC candidate. The second is RPL EC, which is for divers with at least five years experience and thus a wider range of experience in construction than an RPL student.
Companies can contact us any time to schedule and RPL or RPL EC, subject to numbers we can run these at any time.
our next RPL EC is scheduled for APril 15th 2018
