The Unrestricted Surface Supplied Diver qualification is the premier Diver Certification Board of Canada (DCBC) inshore & offshore certification that is recognized worldwide.
As a new diver the DCBC Unrestricted Surface Supplied certification will be the ticket to set your career on the right track with no limitations. The Unrestricted rating is also the pre-requisite for advanced training such as the Diver Medical Technician (DMT/IMCA), Non-destructive Testing, Hydro-tech Welding and the Closed Bell Diver programs. CDI Career Managers are committed to work with you to set educational goals that ensure positive employment outcomes.
This 21-week unrestricted program will qualify you to a depth of 50m, to weld and burn underwater, manage a wide range of energized tools, safely conduct in-water and chamber decompression dives and to work on civil & offshore projects. It will also train you to be an effective member of a dive team who can work productively within regulatory requirements while conducting diving operations from shore, barges and diving support vessels. 2019 will see CDI lead the charge in Canada for fully integrating the use of a Wet Bell and Occupational SCUBA to 30m for all Unrestricted Surface Supplied Divers as required under the Diver Certification Board of Canada and the International Marine Contractors Association for implementation.
