If you are serious about a career in diving, the Diploma qualifications are for you!
This programme encompasses the qualifications of all of the National Certificates in Diving and has been designed to produce dive instructors with the qualifications and skills necessary in this dynamic and exciting industry.
Graduates are registered internationally and are immediately able to apply their knowledge and skills in the dive industry, both in New Zealand and around the world.
During the Diploma course you will learn how to plan and run dive trips, organise and maintain SCUBA gear, interpret weather information, and lead groups on underwater explorations. You will also gain a variety of other valuable skills such as Advanced First Aid, Retail and Sales techniques.
You’ll complete at least 100 dives, both in the Bay of Plenty and at other amazing dive sites throughout New Zealand. Our Students get free access to our high quality hire equipment during the course year, and can even make use of it during their free time and weekends (conditions apply).
