Veterans Are a Priority in the Commercial Diving Industry

Commercial diving is a competitive industry. It’s physically and mentally demanding work. You have to work closely as a team with others who are relying on you for their safety.

Veterans often make ideal commercial divers because they’re disciplined, reliable, and highly adaptable. Vets are used to living and working away from home for extended periods of time, and they don’t shy away from dangerous and challenging work.

This is an industry that actively seeks out and prefers to hire veterans.


We’re Veterans Too. We Get You. 

The Divers Institute of Technology has been continuously owned and operated by veterans since its founding in 1968.

Each veteran will work with a VA certifying official to help you with your G.I. Bill ® benefits paperwork. Our dedicated admissions team will even help you find a place to live while you are here.

More than half of our students and instructors are veterans.

DIT is a VA Approved school. If you served at least 90 days active duty (or 30 days with a service-related disability discharge) after September 10, 2001, you can apply your qualifying Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefit towards your tuition and living expenses while attending DIT.




The Divers Institute Experience

At DIT you’ll get lots of hands-on, in-the-water training during your 7 month program. We’ll teach you surface and underwater welding, cutting, and burning. You’ll learn diving physics and medicine, safety, rigging, salvage, hazmat, inland and offshore diving and more.

DIT is one of just a few schools in the U.S. that offers the internationally-recognized DCBC Unrestricted Surface Supplied Air Diver Certification, allowing our graduates to work globally.

Classes are taught at our campus located on the shore of Lake Union in Seattle, Washington. Seattle is a great place to live, and DIT can help you find affordable short term housing close to campus.


What Our Graduates Are Saying…

Going through training at DIT, we always felt at home. The staff treated us as more than just a student; they prepared us to become part of a family of select few. We left DIT with the skills and confidence needed to be successful in this career and in life. We walk away knowing we are a part of something great.
