We pride ourselves on being able to move our students through training in the shortest allowed amount of time possible, so that our graduates can enter the working world of commercial diving quickly.

Each course is eleven weeks long, six days a day, and ten hours a day. Please note that the start dates of each course change from year to year. The 2014 schedule is as follows:
