In NZ, anyone operating a compressor to fill compressed gas cylinders (SCUBA tanks) must, by law, hold an approved certification to do so.
Failure to comply with this legislation could incur heavy penalties.
WorkSafe NZ regulations apply to all compressor operators and includes compressors on vessels working within the territorial waters of New Zealand.
Here at Waiheke Dive & Snorkel, we have a trainer qualified to run the air fillers course. Certification is valid for a period of five years.
The course takes one day, and we'll run through the entire process of filling cylinders, calculating safe filling rates, plus hands on time doing so, and much much more!
