Our Story

You Become Part of a Close-Knit Fraternity of Exceptionally Well-Trained Professional Divers

We work offshore on oil rigs, oil platforms, wind farms, hyperbaric welding on pipelines, and salvage underwater at depths up to 1200 feet deep. Inshore we work on dams, docks, salvage, nuclear power plants, hydroelectric dams, treatment plants, and more.

Along with a core team of experienced dive supervisors, many of our staff continue to work all over the world, thus keeping contacts and our curriculum up to date to meet industry demands. Up until now, many newly trained divers were ill-equipped without the essential skills required to carry out even the most basic of underwater tasks that diving contractors require. This results in higher risks for dive contractors employing newly qualified divers from both the health and safety and commercial perspective.

At Commercial Diving Technologies Institue, you’re not just a number. You will be part of a close-knit fraternity of exceptionally well-trained professional divers.

Our Unique Location
