Cost - it's free!

Thanks to sponsors, Water Safety NZ, Maritime NZ and Air Purity Limited, Survive the Dive certification is available free!

Created by Fathom, a NZ and Europe-based web marketing and digital development agency, the Survive the Dive application is an exciting opportunity to offer the NZUA's extensive diving and boating knowledge base to every NZ diver in a fun, engaging and meaningful manner.

Ben Christie of Water Safety NZ, sums up the Survive the Dive application well:

"Water Safety New Zealand is thrilled to fund this new initiative and continue its strong partnership with NZUA. We are blessed with places to dive in this country. Diving in all its forms continues to grow in popularity across all demographics. It's so important that every diver makes safety a priority and gets the knowledge they need to stay safe in the water. This free interactive learning platform will make access to that critical knowledge so much easier."

The low-down 

  • The Survive the Dive platform is an engaging way to refresh diving and boating safety knowledge. It's suitable for divers of all levels, as well as dive boat operators.
  • It's gamified, allowing participants to save high-scores and track their learning process.
  • It doesn't replace commercial dive qualifications, so if you're unqualified and planning on diving, please take a formal, professional dive training course.
  • It's free! Thanks to our sponsors, Water Safety NZ, Maritime NZ and Air Purity Limited, all aspects of the Survive the Dive platform are available at no cost.
  • Everyone who passes the final exam with 80% correct answers receives an NZUA-endorsed Survive the Dive certificate, valid for two years.
