What's the minimum age limit & you are expandable till _______ (age)?!


18yrs Old is the minimum age as long as you pass the requirement.

Expandable till when you fail your Diving Medical Test ..... some company put 55yrs old as max working limit.

I know divers that are 58 & 62 yrs old ....still diving.

Look at this way.... you DONT have to be a commercial diver for the rest of your life.

You can be Diving Supervisor, Diving Supertendent, Diving Construction Manager & Company Sole Rep. (CSR)

;D

I agree with Bigjoe. The training is being conducted by ITDA but is not recognised and is not OPITO-certified, not recognised by HSE, or IMCA.

The fee AUS 14,999.00 - might increased for 2008. Not sure how much though. The TT exchange rates are a killer!  :o

I just paid the deposit for confirmation.

Thanks for the travel advice. I might wait for the MATA fair to get the super deal fares!  ;D


Fuyyo, bro, good luck. Would love to the same. Keep writing to us on how it is, man! :)
