Working as  a certified research diver in scientific projects at German institutes and universities require a continuous training of scientific skills under water and a high level of competence in safety at work. According to the German rules for scientific diving each scientific diver has to show proof of at least 12 scientific dives per year with a minimum of 300 min under water.

For scientist and students who did not manage to fulfill the above requirements (12 dives and 300 min), the AWI offers a refreshment course every year. The participants will do supervised training dives, training units in planning and preparing scientific dives as well as a training units in first aid and CPR.
