Course Requirements: To begin the NHRCP courses you must be certified by PADI or SSI as an Advanced Level Diver. This means that non-divers coming to do the program must first complete the Open Water course (3 Days, 9,800 THB) and the Advanced Course (2-3 Days, 8,500 THB). Both of which can be done with the New Heaven Dive School.
Minimum Age of the program is 10 years. Also note that participants must be able to carry a gear bag on and off the boat, ascend stairs, and work outside.
You do not generally have to book in advance for the 1 day course, but if you know you would like to join please do send us an email. Otherwise, just come into the dive school one or two days in advance.
