English Language Requirement – (LNN)

Courses at The Underwater Centre are undertaken in English, so you need to have a high level and clear understanding of written and verbal English in order to successfully complete your training course.

There is a significant amount of safety information, diving theory, and technical information delivered throughout the course. It is vital that all candidates attending our courses are able to fully grasp and respond correctly to the information provided. Safety of all candidates undertaking training is our and ADAS’s primary concern; as such it is essential that all candidates understand clearly all safety-critical information delivered to them. Furthermore, we do not want any candidate to fail because they cannot understand the written exam questions or theory surrounding the question.

ADAS have now implemented a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) process.  “ADAS requires all students to undertake Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) testing prior to commencing their course. For more information and to complete the questionnaire, please visit HERE.

The LLN must be undertaken prior to a course and the certificate of achievement scanned and forwarded to us to complete the candidates booking requirements.

Also a gentle reminder for down the track, when making travel arrangements, you will need to arrange for your own flights to go into either Sydney or Melbourne Airports and then a domestic flight to Launceston Airport in Tasmania, Australia. We will accompany you until to training location.

We can offer further assistance, advice and information to you for your visa application.

Please do not hesitate to contact me (preferred Telegram Apps to 0134488226) if I can be of any assistance with any arrangements.  Great to know we will have the opportunity of meeting and assisting you in the near future.
