National University Polytechnic Institute has a fully accredited Commercial Dive Program!

I am an instructor at National University and am here to answer questions and raise awareness of the Commercial Dive Program.

First, a little history- 

National University Polytechnic Institute was established in 1967 as the Commercial Diving Center.  In 1981 it was purchased by Oceaneering International and renamed College of Oceaneering.  Then, in 2001, National University purchased the college, renamed it National University Polytechnic Institute, and moved the school to San Diego, California. 

National University Polytechnic Institute (a nonprofit institution) has a fully accredited Commercial Dive Program. The Commercial Diving Program, offers two specialties for you to choose from focusing on either Diving & Hyperbaric Medicine (DMT) or Underwater Inspection Technology (NDT).  Regardless of which specialty you choose, all students are trained to the American Welding Society's (AWS) underwater welding code.  Also, since National University is a regionally accredited institution; your credits will hold academic weight for use at other institutions. This also provides our students with the ability to receive the full amount of Veteran’s and Federal Financial Aid benefits that they qualify for.  All questions can be answered by calling the toll free number, (800) 432-3483.  If after hours, please leave a message and they will get back to you.

I will try to field as many questions as I can here, so let em fly!
