Big Blue Tech: Scuba Engineer Courses

For scuba diving professionals, the need to be qualified in a variety of skills is increasing beyond diving level certifications. Having advanced medical training is as important as being able to maintain, test, service and repair scuba diving machinery and equipment. To help make you more employable and increase your diving knowledge we have worked with leading engineers to provide the following internationally recognized courses.

Upon completion, not only will the student receive several international certifications but also get a week long internship at our 5 star dive resort.

The program has three modules or components. With this modular design, the student can build a custom program suited to his or her needs.
