Commercial Diving School in Canada
The Canadian Working Divers Institute trains commercial divers at a reasonable cost to compete in a growing industry, both nationally and internationally.
CWDI has been training qualified individuals to be certified Unrestricted Surface-Supplied Divers since 1993. CWDI has trained well over 500 divers from 25 countries. The demand for certified divers has never greater, which gives our graduates a prime opportunity to engage in an exciting and rewarding career. Upon graduation you will receive an Unrestriced Surface-Supplied Diver Certification, from the Divers Certifcation Board of Canada (D.C.B.C).
Course Introduction, Location & Facility:
Canadian Working Divers Institute has a superior campus located on Borden Lake near Chapleau, Ontario. The facility is named Chapleau Lodge.
The emphasis of the offered course is on practical hands-on training with up-to-date marine construction and offshore techniques. This facility gives our students a competitive edge through the cost-effectiveness of receiving this training in a real-life commercial diving environment; all accompanied by professional, certified and experienced instructors.
On a typical day CWDI students wake up at 05:30, have a snack and start class at approximately 5:55 am. There is a break from 08:00 am to 08:30 am for breakfast. After breakfast students and instructors depart from the lodge on the CWDI diving barge for the day. Students will spend the day working on practical non-simulated projects, which duplicate an actual working environment. Lunch is served on the barge (we do not stop for lunch) and return to the lodge by 18:00. Dinner is served and after students will have time to complete homework assignments or receive extra help from instructors. Time permitting; students can engage in relaxing activities such as hiking, fishing, swimming or relaxing around a campfire.
