Divers Institute of TechnologySEATTLE, WA Est. 1968

At DIT, we don’t just train underwater welders, or any other particular type of diver. We care about creating a well-balanced diver, and we will train you to succeed in many aspects of commercial diving. You’ll perform deep dives to 165 feet, employing both in-water and surface decompression. Your instructors here are industry experienced and knowledgeable in the field, and our intensive, hands-on, and measurable curriculum is designed so that once you graduate, you are prepared to excel. 


With more than 50 years of hands-on training, soar 165 feet deep into Lake Union and feel the adrenaline pumping through your veins as you weld underwater, drill holes in concrete, use hydraulic tools, underwater chainsaws, and have other thrilling experiences that our 7-month program offers. 


At DIT, we are committed to training quality divers so that when you graduate, you’ll enter the diving industry with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in your new career. When you attend school here, the bulk of your surface supplied diver training will be conducted in open water, giving you real world experience that can’t be replicated in pools, tanks, or quarries.


We’ve been Veteran Owned and Veteran Operated since our inception in 1968. We were the first, and are currently one of only four programs, in the United States to offer an International Certification, the CSA . This allows you to work globally, and can open up many opportunities for you in your future career.

Here at DIT, we ask a lot of you, and you’ll be expected to challenge yourself,
but we’ll be here to help you each step of the way!

Going to DIT was the best choice I have made after getting out of the military. The brother hood from my the military experience almost all carried over to the atmosphere at DIT. The class you are in will definitely become your new family. The staff and instructors care so much about the students and make sure we graduate knowing the basics to make it out in the diving industry. I have also met some life long friends attending DIT.
