The partners will devise courses for the new purpose-built training center at Unique’s premises at the Hamriyah Free Zone in Sharjah. On completion of the course and passing an exam, students will receive either a certificate of participation from NHC or an IMCA- or OGP-recognized certification from the relevant authority.

Courses to be offered will include IMCA Air Diving Supervisor, IMCA Assistant Life Support Technician, IMCA Bell/Gas Diving Supervisor, OGP Client Representative, Dive Technician, IMCA Diver Medic, Diver Medic Refresher, Diving Systems Auditing and Assurance, and Subsea Rigging and Lifting.
