NACDS COURSES OBJECTIVE

The primary objective of the NACDS Commercial Diver and Diving Supervisor Courses is to insure that graduates are able to safely and effectively perform or supervisor the necessary duties for each dive team station both topside and underwater. Commercial divers should have advanced diving knowledge and skills, with substantial open water diving experience in a variety of environmental conditions. Certified Commercial Divers should be proficient at working underwater with Scuba, Tethered Scuba and Surface-Supplied-Air-Diving System with Voice Communication.

COURSE OVERVIEW

The Basic Commercial Diver Course consists of:

項目符號

Two (2) Days Academic Training

項目符號

Four (4) Days Openwater Training

Minimum Class Size is 6 students. Training schedules may be agreed among class students.

The training will be scheduled in three phases:

Phase 1

Advanced diving technology and techniques consisting of a comprehensive knowledge and experiences covering the areas of : diving physics, physiology, medical aspects, decompression, rescue techniques, first aid & CPR, Automatic External Defibrillator, oxygen first aid, commercial diving equipment maintenance and repairs, underwater working techniques, commercial diving standards and procedures etc.

Phase 2

Each student learns how to perform at the six duty stations for a surface-supplied-air-dive team, which includes: Diver, Tender, Safety Diver, Air Console Operator, Record Keeper, and Dive Team Supervisor.

Phase 3

Commercial diving projects, tailored to the specific skills that are appropriate for that team. We may be working with marine engineers, boat maintenance divers, public service rescue dive teams, fisheries harvest divers, marine Investigators, etc.

HISTORY OF NACDS

During the 1970, it became apparent that the problems required to train commercial offshore oil field divers were very technical and extensive, while sport diving training was going more towards the short, less technical programs and vacation oriented divers. At the same time, there was a growing need for divers to perform professional tasks in shallow water that required training in advanced diving technology and surface-supplied diving with communication , but not to the extent of the 6 months to two years courses being offered through commercial diving schools and colleges.

There was, and still is, another dilemma to deal with. Throughout the world there are hundreds of small companies and public safety / service agencies that need their dive teams trained and qualified to work underwater using surface-supplied diving equipment with voice communication. It is simply not feasible for an entire team to attend a commercial diving program. It is not affordable and some, or all of the divers, do not speak English well enough to learn at one of these schools.

In 1983, at The Ocean Corporation Commercial Diving School in Houston, TX, a team of Professional NAUI and Commercial Diving Instructors, under the direction of Thomas Hemphill, created a short training program called "Commercial Scuba Diver". The primary objective at that was to provide specialty commercial diver training for experience/advanced Scuba divers and public service dive teams.

The National Association of Commercial Scuba Divers (NACSD) was found and qualification standards for NACSD Divers and Instructors were established. By the end of 1993, more than 400 Commercial Diving Specialists and 50 Commercial Diving Instructors had been trained and certified by NACSD.

In March of 1994, after reviewing the students' backgrounds and requests from the association membership, the Board of Directors elected proposed to change the Name of the association to the National Association of Commercial Diving Specialists (NACDS). The term "Scuba" was deleted in order to more accurately represent the training programs because very few of the members were actually using Scuba for working underwater and most of the training programs being conducted focused on surface-supplied diving. The current Executive Director of NACDS is Phillip E. Graf, who is also providing Underwater Services and Training in the U.S.A.

VALUE OF THE SPECIALIST TRAINING

We are primarily working with people that are already in the Marine / Hyperbaric related industry skills, simply allow them to perform underwater the same tasks that they are qualified to do topside. The unique features of our NACDS programs include:

項目符號

We are able to travel to all areas, worldwide, and train entire dive teams in their environment with their equipment.

項目符號

We also train the topside, non-diving team members who need to learn how to set-up, operate and maintain the diving systems, and who must understand the medical aspects of diving, decompression calculations, tending techniques and chamber operations.

項目符號

We tailor the training projects to focus on the special skills that the dive team will be doing, so as not to waste time teaching unnecessary skills.

項目符號

We issue NACDS Commercial Diver Certifications as well as NAUI Advanced, Rescue, Master Diver and NAUI-DAN Professional Diving First Aid Certifications for Entry-level and Supervisor candidates.

項目符號

Our primary program meets the OSHA Standards and ADC Requirement for Commercial Diver Training for shallow, umbilical diving on air.
