Diving and Training Centre

The centre opened in August 2008 thanks to funding from IYF/Nokia. This centre provides professional diving training for rural youth.

Before the 2004 Tsunami, the main livelihood within Seenigama village was coral mining and burning to make quicklime. Research after the Tsunami showed that in areas where coral had been destroyed, the waves were much more powerful and destructive. This research led to the banning of coral mining, which resulted in many people losing their means of making an income.

This centre was opened to fill the gap; 60 students per year receive diving training, which will qualify them for employment in the global commercial diving business and through the affiliated company Dive Seenigama, Dive Lanka.

The course is a 3 month Professional Diving Class III course, and includes Underwater Welding & Cutting (14-day course).

Students also complete their PADI Advanced Course to fully equip them for employment in industrial diving work.
