A commercial diver has to expose himself to cold water, hydrostatic pressure; has to get in contact with various aquatic creatures and objects that he restores. They have to dive in rivers, lakes, seas, canals and oceans. They have to use specialized equipment for their safety and for being able to resist a long period of time under water. They will have diving helmets, full face masks and air compressors, underwater cutting torches, special underwater welding equipment, special suits and others. The commercial divers have to be very meticulous about their job and respect a plan. There is an element of risk to divers and changing weather conditions should be always considered.


When diving, the commercial divers have to respect some rules. First of all they must dive only in teams and someone has to monitor them from a boat. There are cases when the places are dangerous and paramedics will stand by in case of any emergencies.

If you want to be a competitive candidate for a commercial diver job, then make sure you refer to all important skills and abilities that any diver should possess. Write about your qualification in the field, your swimmer condition and manual dexterity in your resume.
