Diving Done Right - Experienced Instructors, Advanced Technology
CDA challenges our students every day with complex, real-world problems and lets the student solve them. We provide training and go beyond to make sure our graduates have a complete understanding of diving operations.
Commercial diving is industrial construction that takes place underwater. Commercial divers work all over the world, and are experts in underwater welding, underwater salvage and recovery, underwater inspection, and installation.
After all the research I've done and instructors I've talked to, CDA is bar-none the premier dive school in all of America.
