Divers and Diving Technicians
The U.S. Department of Labor reports that employment for commercial divers will grow by 16 percent through 2020, or about as fast as the average for all careers. The world is increasingly turning to the sea to supply mineral resources, new and additional sources of food and medicine, transportation, and national defense. This growth in marine activity has resulted in a continuing demand for qualified divers and diving technicians.
