CAREERS

There are many careers in recreational scuba diving that are available for certified dive supervisors/masters and above, especially here in the Caribbean where there is a thriving dive-tourism business. Persons holding recreational certifications are not hired to work in the commercial industry because they are not trained to undertake such jobs. Commercial divers are trained for the occupational environment by going through months of theory classes and logging hours of surface-supplied diving using the proper equipment. Jobs are available both locally and internationally for the commercial diver and the recreational diver in his or her specific field.

To date all of the commercial diving graduates from UWIL have acquired jobs in the commercial diving industry. We have also made contact with the various local commercial dive companies to advise them of our certifications and graduate availability.

 For more information on jobs availability, please contact us.

WARNING NOTE: I DO NOT AGREE WITH DIVE COMPANIES AND COMPANIES THAT HIRE NON COMMERCIAL DIVERS TO WORK AS COMMERCIAL DIVERS, PRETENDING TO HAVE RECOGNISED  COMMERCIAL DIVER CERTIFICATIONS.

I PLEAD WITH COMPANIES ---- DO NOT HIRE DIVERS WHO DO NOT HAVE A  RECOGNISED COMMERCIAL DIVER CERTIFICATION CARD.

PERSONS WITH RECREATIONAL CARDS ARE NOT TRAINED TO WORK IN THE FIELD ----- PLEASE DO NOT HIRE THEM.

THERE ARE DIVING COMPANIES WHO ARE NOT USING RECOGNISED CERTIFIED SUPERVISORS TO SEND DIVERS DOWN AND ARE BENDING DIVERS.  

PRESENTLY 2 STATE ENTERPRISES ARE USING NON COMMERCIAL DIVERS TO DO DANGERIOUS CLEANING JOBS OF INTAKES. THE COMPANIES  CHARGE CHEAPER AND THESE STATE COMPANIES INSIST ON USING THEM. THIS MUST STOP. CALL ME I WILL CALL NAMES.
