What do commercial divers do?
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.
I want to be an Underwater Welder
CDA's internationally-recognized training includes an introduction to topside welding and underwater welding for commercial divers. Our Highly trained instructors provide guidance to our students. A successful commercial diver needs to be highly trained and proficient in all facets of commercial diving. This is where CDA graduates excel and the CDA Advantage comes through!
The Air Mixed Gas Commercial Diver Program does not qualify a student to become an underwater welding specialist. Additional training is required for certification. Contact our Admission Team for details - 877-407-4883.
Military & Veterans
Much like military personnel, a commercial diver needs to travel to where the work is. Additionally, they are required to work safely and possess the endurance to work long hours under difficult conditions. A diver often needs to act quickly and follow a strict set of standard operational procedures similar to those that were experienced during time in the service.
CDA is proud to be considered a Veteran Friendly School by Victory Media's Military Friendly® Schools Program for the past 7 years in a row. We honor our Military Students by waiving the registration fee for all those Veteran's that have been Honorable Discharge from their military service. In addition we offer a waiver program for tuition and application fee. There are rules and restriction to this waiver program and the Veteran is encouraged to learn more by click the below link or contacting our Admissions team at 888 974-2232.
