Job Description:

ABOUT

Their accomplishments are epic. Their expertise is unrivaled. No other force is more intensely trained to succeed in the perilous world of underwater adventure. Each assignment they take on is crucial and backed by a steadfast dedication to teamwork.

Navy Divers are part of an extraordinary community. They journey anywhere from the darkest depths of the world's oceans to freezing arctic-like conditions underneath icebergs, accomplishing a number of tasks only few can perform, with no margin for error.

Navy Divers may be expected to:

* Perform a variety of diving salvage operations and special diving duties worldwide

* Take part in construction and demolition projects

* Execute search and rescue missions

* Support military and civilian law enforcement agencies

* Serve as the technical experts for diving evolutions for numerous military Special Operations units

* Provide security, communications and other logistics during Expeditionary Warfare missions

* Carry out routine ship maintenance, including restoration and repair

RESPONSIBILITIES

Your job as a Navy Diver could encompass many dive specialties, including:

Salvage and recovery - Locating and retrieving wreckage; conducting harbor and waterway clearance, underwater repairs and salvage operations in all environments

Deep submergence - Probing the greatest depths in the name of research and other classified missions

Ship husbandry - Inspecting and repairing ships and submarines

Saturation diving - Working and living at extreme depths for days or weeks at a time

WORK ENVIRONMENT

Fittingly, the Navy Diver motto is "We Dive the World Over." Members of this Special Operations force travel the world, working everywhere imaginable, in just about every possible undersea environment - from cold, muddy water where underwater tasks can be completed by feel only - to warm, tropical waters clear enough for underwater photography.

TRAINING & ADVANCEMENT

Training to become a Navy Diver challenges your willpower, intelligence and physical strength - and puts your desire to the test. Complete the training, and you'll rank among the world's elite underwater adventurers. Training includes:

Diver Preparation Course (7 weeks) at Naval Training Command, Great Lakes, IL for training in basic electrical and engineering courses, water adaptability and physical fitness

Second Class Dive School (15 weeks) at the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center (NDSTC) in Panama City, FL for training in any or all of the following:

* Air and mixed gas diving

* Underwater cutting and welding

* Demolition

* Recompression chamber operations

* Underwater hydraulic tools

* Ship maintenance, repair and salvage

Fleet Training - You will be assigned to one of the Navy Diving Units to be trained to perform underwater ship repair, salvage and construction, using either SCUBA equipment or a surface-supplied-air diving system. Training for Diving Medical Officers and Diving Medical Technicians is also part of Fleet training.

Advanced Training - Many experienced divers return to NDSTC for further course work so they can qualify as First Class Divers and Master Divers.

For those with further leadership aspirations and a college degree, Officer roles are available - providing opportunities to lead and train others.

Promotion opportunities are regularly available but competitive and based on performance. It's also important to note that specialized training received and work experience gained in the course of service can lead to valuable credentialing and occupational opportunities in related fields

EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES

Members of the Naval Special Warfare/Naval Special Operations (NSW/NSO) community have any number of unique opportunities to advance their education. Navy training provides skills and knowledge in everything from the fundamentals of explosive ordnance disposal to chemical and biological warfare, military tactics, deep-sea diving or a number of other tactical military procedures.

Beyond offering access to professional credentials and certifications, Navy training in the EOD community can translate to credit hours toward a bachelor's or associate degree through the American Council on Education. You may also continue your education through opportunities like:

* Navy College Program and Tuition Assistance

* Post-9/11 GI Bill

QUALIFICATIONS & REQUIREMENTS

Males and females are eligible to apply to become Enlisted Navy Divers. No college degree is required, but a high degree of difficulty and satisfaction is standard. Training is tough and ongoing. You can apply for the Navy Challenge contract for Divers at any time during your first enlistment.

Entry Requirements:

* Eyesight 20/200 bilateral correctable to 20/25 with no color blindness

* Minimum Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) score: AR+VE=103, MC=51

* Pass a physical examination required for divers

* Be 30 years of age or younger

* Must be a U.S. citizen and eligible for security clearance

General qualifications may vary depending upon whether you're currently serving, whether you've served before or whether you've never served before.
