Nationally Recognised Training

At Aquatic Adventures we are a 3rd-Party-Provider of Nationally Recognised Training & courses for PADI's RTO.

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.
