DIT was initially audited by the Diver Certification Board of Canada (DCBC) in September 2003 and has been in compliance with CSA Z275 in 5-year audits ever since. DIT was the first diving program in the U.S. to reach the goal of providing international certification. Most international diving and national certifying agencies have reciprocity agreements to recognize DIT graduates’ international certifications. DCBC certification is recognized by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) of the United Kingdom and the Australian Diver Accreditation Scheme (ADAS). International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) fully recognizes the DCBC Unrestricted Diver certification our students receive without them having to log further dives after graduation.
