CDA Technical Institute's Commercial Diver Program

California Prison Program - Training Commercial Divers

California has more than 115,000 people incarcerated within its state prisons. According to a study in 2013, the recidivism rate - the rate at which former inmates return to prison - is at 61%. That means approximately 6 out of 10 individuals who've been released from prison end up returning within 3 years.

However, with rehabalitative programs and Training Centers - like the Marine Technology Training Center at Chino Prison - recidivism rates among participants of this unique program are much lower.

Watch the video below for a glimpse into the Chino Divers training program.
