What qualifications can you gain from navy diving? Just thought it might help with my interview, week of revision is a go!

One of the main transferable skills with Navy diving is commercial diving qualifications, you need these to work in diving from inland work e.g. fish farms to the North Sea oil fields.

These can cost as much as ?5k :amazed: to get from training centres and often to build a skill base to make yourself more attractive to potential employers you often need more than one qualification for different types of diving using different equipment, so these can cost a vast amount of money overall.

So those qualifications (there are several commercial diving qualifications, not sure which ones you get with navy diving) plus the diving hours and experience you get on the job stand you in good stead for a career in commercial diving afterwards, which can be a very good ( if potentially dangerous) career- there are the lucky ones who can earn $400 a day plus.
