Purpose

The National Certificate in Diving (Foundation Skills) (Level 3) [Ref: 1321] recognises the foundation skills and knowledge required of people entering any sector of the dive industry.


Holders of this qualification will have demonstrated competence in a number of required introductory and prerequisite diving skills and experiences. Candidates may choose to advance to a variety of dive and underwater construction qualifications such as the National Certificate in Diving (Leadership) (Level 4) [Ref: 1322], the National Certificate in Aquaculture (Diving) (Level 4) [Ref: 1210], or the Australian Dive Accreditation Scheme (ADAS) Part One and Two.
This qualification can be an entry point for people working in the dive industry. The qualification structure also recognises the diversity in diving workplaces and the nature of work that they can undertake. To reflect this, the qualification includes an elective section where candidates are able to choose unit standards relevant to their workplace. The compulsory unit standards meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Service’s Limited Certificate of Competence, which allows entry into dive sectors such as Aquaculture, and Film and Photographic. They also allow entry to further training in the Underwater Construction, Scientific, Recreational Instruction, and Dive Tourism sectors of the industry.

Special Notes

A current diving medical statement from a physician in compliance with the Recreational Scuba Training Council’s (RSTC) guidelines is requirement prior to beginning a programme leading to the award of this qualification. This medical statement must remain valid for the duration of the course of study.


Unit standards 4387, 4393 and 4398 require a prerequisite of proof of 20 logged dives showing experience in navigation, and deep and night diving, or demonstration of equivalent knowledge and skills.
