For commercial divers with several years of experience under your belt, many different types of skilled commercial diver jobs are available. These jobs are typically more hands-on and challenging, requiring a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Most experienced commercial diver jobs include lead divers and supervisors. Lead divers are responsible for a commercial diving team; their job is to direct the other divers on the team. They must be able to think on their feet and make quick decisions. They are responsible for the safety of the other divers on the team.
Supervisors oversee commercial dive operations and are responsible for ensuring that all aspects of the dive operation run smoothly. This includes preparing the dive site, managing the commercial diving team, and being on call in case of an emergency.
Another in-demand professional commercial diver job is that of a saturation diver. Saturation diver jobs are some of the most challenging and dangerous. Saturation diving involves working in extremely deep waters (up to 1,000 feet or more) for long periods. Construction and demolition at these depths require breathing pressurized air and weeks in a pressurized environment.
Entry-level and experienced commercial diver jobs are available for all types of commercial diving, whether onshore or offshore. Offshore diving jobs are typically more challenging and dangerous, as they occur in deep water far from land. On the other hand, onshore diving jobs have lower risks and lesser hazards.
