Upgrades and Refreshers


Course Refreshers

As part of our commitment to career-long success, Divers Institute of Technology offers refresher courses to graduates. Graduates are only charged for costs of materials on course refreshers from the curriculum they took as DIT students.

Alumni are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to stay current with industry procedures, equipment, and safe diving practices. Continued education is especially vital when considering a major career change within the diving industry, where local legislation, as well as equipment and procedures, may be unfamiliar.


To qualify for refresher courses, graduates must be current on their financial obligations to DIT. For courses that include diving, graduates must provide:

  • Current dive physical,
  • First Aid/CPR/AED certification
  • Emergency oxygen provider certification
  • Personal dive gear

If the refresher course requested was part of your original curriculum, you will be charged the cost of materials only. If you require additional courses that were not part of your original curriculum, but are offered now, you will be charged at a current day rate.


DIT courses begin once every four weeks. However, availability for Alumni is based on number of open seats. If current classes are full, there may be a waiting period.
