Why attend Commercial Divers International
 

Our staff includes veterans who have served as Divers in the US Navy, and many of the protocols used in the commercial diving industry were developed by the US Navy. Because surface-supplied diving is heavily influenced by the US military, recognition and respect for service members/veterans is reinforced daily. Familiarity with military procedures also provides service members/veterans with an advantage in our program/industry because of the strict requirements for safety and chain of command required in every commercial diving operation.
