Trainee  Entry Criteria 

New entrants to the industry should be treated as trainees until deemed competent to work unsupervised. 

Trainees should normally hold a formal qualification awarded by a recognised national body in one of the following subjects: 

  • electronics technician, mechanical engineering, hydraulic engineering, electrical engineering, marine engineering, motor vehicle engineering, aviation technician (any discipline) 
  • agricultural machinery maintenance and repair, plumbing, shipbuilding, telecommunications or 
  • have completed a recognised Trade Apprenticeship in a relevant trade. 
  • SEND YOU CV to and our instructor will let you know if you meet the criteria

The trainee’s employer should define a training programme for each individual commensurate with his/her previous experience and the type of equipment and type of operation on which he/she will be working. It is expected that some elements of basic training can be performed ‘on the job’ and some by attendance at various courses which are available through commercial training establishments and equipment suppliers and manufacturers. The training plan for a trainee should be an integral part of the company’s competence assurance and assessment scheme for trainee dive technicians.
