PADI Compressor Operator Course

The Compressor Operator course offered is a distinctive course meaning it is a self-authored training program that has been approved by PADI, with it’s own PADI certification. It covers an area not otherwise taught within traditional diver training syllabuses. This can be seen as a proactive step towards increasing employability within the industry in addition to becoming a safe and competent compressor operator. A student study guide accompanies the course.

The course works well as a grounding before compressor maintenance training and gas blender courses.
