Hi Ikan Jepun,

UK's Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and Australian Diving Accreditation Scheme are Governing Bodies, i.e enforcer of statutory requirements. As in UK and Australia, diving legislation (Approved Code of Practice, ACOP) is a law, both bodies developed and define and certify divers to the minimum acceptable competency standard for different levels of occupational diving.

So, perbezaan antara HSE and ADAS, more to finer points of diving legislation. ADAS legislation is developed based on HSE's set of standard and it has earned approvals as being equivalent to HSE's certification. If your question is about the difference between the two certifications, there's particularly none. ADAS is equivalent to HSE and if you are working outside UK and Australia's territorial waters, both certification is accepted by IMCA. The only significant difference is HSE's diving certification has got no expiry while ADAS certification card expires every 5 years. You need to pay a little bit of money and submit log dives for renewal.

if you wanna read HSE, ADAS Approved Code of Practice Or IMCA International Code of Practice, let me know.




Hope the above helps.

Has anyone done a full 12 weeks Air Diving course in Marseille? Apart from the Bell Course, where the chief instructor is Scottish, most of the trainers teaching the air diving course don't speak fluent english, even the chief instructor of their air diving course speaks crappy english. I mean, its up to you, if you just want the ticket or you really want to learn the fundamentals of commercial diving.

I raised the language barrier as a safety issue during in-water training and quality of trainings to non-french speaking trainees with HSE and IMCA few years ago as INPP has reciprocal recognition with both organisations, until today, i've yet to hear feedbacks from trainees that completes full air diving course over there.

There are a few training schools in Australia, try inquiring with them about cost of training and accommodation.


Hope the above helps.

Yeah the French can't really speak english very well. My client is one of the insurance company in france, they can write but they cant speak english at all. by the way thanks for the info. As for now i got an info that TUCT will cost about A$15K for 3 month (ADAS 1,2 & 3).

Is that all after completing the training? what else do we need to go to the industry?  [-(

Basic requirements that you need and maintain after completing training

a) Annual medical fitness to dive by a recognized diving physician (which u will need prior to dive training)
b) In-date OPITO Offshore survival training cert (depending on geographical location, i.e Brunei Shell requires Safe Boat Transfer n EBS)
c) Lots of patience, determination, luck and like what bijan says, balls, big ones.

Then you will wanna consider specialty skills like underwater welding, inspection, diver medic etc.


hope the above helps.

Pasir Gudang would be MSTS .... BOSIET with OPITO approved.

U can google OPITO to learn more about it or you can contact MSTS about it.

Yes, there is a Diving School here in NZ. Its called New Zealand School of Commercial Diver Training and the address was given earlier. I am here now doing my ADAS 1,2 and 3.... B-)
If you think it is expensive to hire a professional to do a job - wait until you hire an amateur.
