Hey guys first off would like to say great web site. I searched in the forums and was unable to find any information on this subject. So I figured I would start my own thread. I am soon to find myself out of the military. So in the light of having to find a new career I came up with the idea of getting into commercial diving. I currently have a few sport dives logged, however I am not certified at any level of scuba. I looked into a few dive schools commercial diving academy in Jacksonville and the diving academy in New Jersey. Is there one thing that puts one school above the other? Is going to either of these schools necessary or is there another way to get my foot into the door? Also I was wondering what kind of pay I will make entry level and how much I can expect that to go up? Well any help on these matters will be greatly appreciated also any other information that can help is welcome too.
