If you work in marine science, other areas of underwater scientific research, as a scientific diver or in scientific diving programs as part of a university course, then this is the course you need to perform restricted diving for scientific purposes.

This is the latest Scientific Diving course, which has recently changed to meet occupational diving requirements. It is now a 6-day program as well as a pre-study. It consists of two confined water, and twelve ocean dives over the program.  The course can be done in a group or privately on chosen dates.


We offer group (scheduled, see list below) and private options for our restricted occupational scuba diver for scientific purposes course. The private option has a premium of $600 per student but can be arranged around dates that work best for you. Please call us on  02 9583 9662  to discuss your scientific diving needs, and we will develop a program for you.
