The term offshore refers to the fact that the work takes place on vessels and platforms in the open ocean or Offshore throughout the globe. The offshore industry is very challenging, diverse and exciting. The major part of this work is accomplished in support of the oil and gas industry, but also includes major salvage operations and subsea construction. Some of the busiest waters in the world can be found in the Gulf of Mexico, Mexico, the North Sea, Southeast Asia and West Africa. The DCBC certification allows DIT grads to travel and work around the globe. Divers are tasked with maintenance, repair installation and removal of abandoned oil related structures and salvage operations. Skills employed to complete this work include rigging, underwater welding and burning, using hydraulic tools sets including guillotine and diamond wire saws. Many of these dives are done in conjunction with underwater robotics called Remotely Controlled Vehicles (ROVs).
