Sponsored by Water Safety NZ and Maritime NZ, the ground-breaking web application allows divers to refresh and test their diving and boating safety knowledge with a gamified quiz and apply for an NZUA-endorsed certificate.
Created by Fathom, an Auckland-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."
Work is underway to offer the Survive the Dive web application in six languages - English, Te Reo, Samoan, Tongan, Hindi and Simplified Chinese. The English version is available today. The additional languages are scheduled for launch early January, if not sooner.
Thanks to sponsors, Water Safety NZ, Maritime NZ and Air Purity Limited, Survive the Dive certification is available free!
