• Commercial Diver Training

    The diver training industry has come a long way. Before the establishment of ACDE (Association of Commercial Diving Educators) and its recognition by ANSI (American National Standards Institute), there was hardly any system of training whatsoever that would have passed as formal, structured diver education. Much like any craft or trade, divers used to causally pass on skills to one another with little regard for sound and effective instruction and, more importantly, safety. However, the landscape has changed, and people wishing to pursue a career in commercial diving have plenty of options to receive a quality education.
