What Makes Our Program the “Ultimate” Diver Training?

We call our program the “Ultimate” Diver Training because of its comprehensive design. This program was created to give you both the hands–on practical training and technical industry knowledge you need to pursue a successful career in Commercial Diving.

This program meets or exceeds all of the standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for entry–level Commercial Divers. It includes in–depth skills training for both surface and underwater welding and cutting, as well as mixed gas and saturation diving.

Plus, as a student in this program you’ll be introduced to the latest revolution in the diving industry — Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV).

Advancement Based on Performance

Advancement in Commercial Diving is based on personal performance. Divers who do their jobs well have potential to move ahead fast. The people you will work for in this field are divers themselves. They do not care where you came from or how new you are to diving — only that you do a good job.

Since 1969

In an industry where individual performance really matters, you’ll be thankful for the in–depth, comprehensive training you receive from Ocean Corp’s Ultimate Diver Training. It’s important to remember, we have been in this business since 1969 and we know what it takes to get ahead in this industry – that’s what we will pass on to you.

Within 300 Miles

The majority of commercial diving done in the world is done in the Gulf of Mexico. This is the very reason why The Ocean Corporation chose to locate its training facilities in Houston, Texas way back in 1969. Many major commercial diving companies are located within 300 miles of our front door!

Exciting Employment Opportunities

Houston is the place to be for those wanting to work offshore. Commercial divers are vital to offshore production. They build the oil platforms and pipelines deep below the ocean surface. They also perform all aspects of subsurface inspections and repairs on these structures.

Inland Diving

Many Ocean Corp graduates choose to work offshore but, there is a wide variety of diving opportunities available inland for trained commercial divers as well. Divers routinely perform inspections, repairs and support services for a variety of inland diving projects including:

  • Nuclear Plants
  • Bridges
  • Municipal Waste Water Facilities
  • Dams
  • Ship Harbors
  • Ports
  • Water Towers
  • Resorts and Cruise Lines
  • Aquariums
  • Casinos
  • Intracoastal Waterways
  • River Pipelines

And many more!

Remember, three–quarters of this planet are covered with water and diving opportunities begin at the shoreline.
