About our Certification Programs

We have been training and certifying divers since 1998 beginning with Technical Diving as the ETDA European Technical Diving Agency and then being asked by our instructors, trainers and course directors to develop recreational Scuba certifications back in 2004/05.

And from 2006/07 we expanded into the Occupational (At Work) diving market with "Construction diving" and "Public Safety Diving / UW Welding and Professional Rescue" Public Safety Diving programs which were developed with and for the Malaysian Federal Fire and Rescue Services. In 2009/10. We developed Research and Scientific Diving with Higher Education from ITDA Academy and skills from ITDA.
Many of these courses are still running today...

So a big warm welcome from ITDA HQ Management to our full range of course programs...Many of our certification programs have junior levels from 8 years to 15 years old.  For Advanced Technical Diving and Professional levels minimum age is 18 Years. Professional Technical levels are 21 years plus...

Note: all Technical levels are Diploma Level as are the Assessor Grades and some professional levels. All ITDA Recreational Scuba programs are Certificate levels... In academic terms Diploma & Certificate are the level awards.
