Nationally Recognised Training
At Aquatic Adventures we are a 3rd-Party-Provider of Nationally Recognised Training & courses for PADI's RTO.
PADI Asia Pacific Pty Ltd is a Registered Training Organisation (# 6729) that complies with the Australian Standards for RTOs and is registered with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) – Australia’s national regulator – to deliver Vocational Education & Training (VET) qualifications. This allows PADI RTO to issue Nationally Recognised Training (NRT) certificates, called Statements of Attainment..
PADI RTO Trainers provide comprehensive, learner-centered and instructionally valid vocational training in Australia. To ensure a exceptionally high quality, the training is combined with a proactive quality management system.
Scuba Diving VET courses
The excellent educational validity of PADI courses means that they can and have been adapted to fit Vocational Education & Training guidelines. Statements of Attainment can be issued for all the courses registered in scope with ASQA, and these can not only be used to fulfill workplace requirements, but may also be credited towards higher education certificated and diplomas.
