Ok so here's my situation. I've already payed my deposit on the Standard Career Package (9 weeks) at The Underwater Centre which starts on the 4th of October this year. I knew about both the diving schoolas mentioned but didn't really check out the Professional Diving Academy until now and what I've seen has kind of made me worry if I've made the right choice.
Basically for The Underwater Centre I'm paying £8,773 which will get me
HSE First Aid at Work
HSE Surface Supplied
HSE Surface Supplied (Top Up)
and also including the full board accomodation I'm paying for thats another £2,488.50 so in total I'm paying £11,261.50
Now I've just check on the Professional Diving Academy that I can do the Premier Career Package (10weeks) for £9985 and I get
HSE First Aid @ Work & 02 Provider (Commercial Diving Endorsement)
HSE Professional SCUBA (Part 4)
HSE Surface Supplied (Part 3)
HSE Surface Supplied Top-Up (Part 1)
Construction and Inspection Diver Award
RYA Powerboat Level II
Lantra HSE Approved Chainsaw Course
these guys don't have accomodation but apparently you can get self catering B&B varying from £100 to £200 a week
I reckon they both will probably work out around the same amount of money but I should I go for The Professional Diving Academy just because of 3 extra qualifications or stick to The Underwater Centre?
I basically have until Friday 27th of this month to cancel my deposit with a 20% administration fee, after that I will lose all my deposit which is £1000. Would be good to hear from people who have studied at both schools.
