ADAS and IMCA Onshore Dive Supervisor Course

This is the first level of certification as an ADAS dive supervisor and the level issued can be up to the highest ADAS certification you hold. The Dive Supervisor is the member of a professional diving team who is responsible for the diving operations safety and the management of the operation within the scope of diving.

Feedback from a recent supervisor

"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"
