Technician Courses


Before you book with competitors please consider - we are the longest established, most experienced, best quality and still the cheapest course provider in Europe.

Our popular technician courses include IMCA approved "Assistant Life Support Technician" for personnel following the IMCA career structure to become Life Support Technicians. They control saturation diving system environments. Diving System Technicians maintain the complex diving plant and equipment used on commercial air or closed bell diving work sites.

Divers living in saturation conditions require constant monitoring and control by personnel outside the deck decompression chamber. The oxygen content of their breathing gas, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the pressure, temperature and humidity of their environment all need to be monitored regularly and functions such as feeding and sewage disposal need to be controlled from the outside.

The history of commercial diving has seen a very rapid expansion in the use of saturation diving techniques, with increasingly sophisticated equipment and larger chamber complexes being developed to meet the need for large numbers of divers to work at greater depths.

This has greatly increased the responsibilities of those who control the chamber environment and, consequently, the knowledge they must have of the physics, physiology and medical aspects of supporting man in high-pressure environments.

Life Support Technicians come from a variety of different backgrounds, including highly skilled technicians from other industries, qualified nurses, former divers and some specially trained for the role.
