Restringido SCUBA Diver 

This program is for working divers using SCUBA for the air supply up to 20 or 30 Meters (66 or 99 FSW). Commercial work using SCUBA is very cost effective for shallow work such as cleaning boat hulls, inspections and harvesting sea life for sale, for example. Yet it carries much more risk than its surface supplied counterpart. For this reason, training and adhering to written standards can help minimize those risks and create a safer and more productive dive team.

Our program trains divers on the fundamentals of diving, how to safely operate in a water environment, and standards of operation for the dive station / job site.
