Upon completion of the course, you should:

What else should I know?

  • 50 logged diving hours working as a practicing commercial diver for back-to-back 3.1U followed by the 3.2U

Please note:
If candidates are taking the 3.1U and 3.2U back-to-back then they must have satisfied the 3.1U and 3.2U training requirements and take the 3.1U examination prior to the 3.2U examination.

These combined examinations will require the candidate to spend more than one day at the test centre. 3.2U certificates will only be issued if success in both the 3.1U and 3.2U examinations is achieved and the candidate has provided proof of at least one years' experience working as a practising commercial diver.
