I'd say youngs mem. is the best that you can get. they're not IMCA, but you don't need that unless you are going international. Most companies are switching to IMCA, so if you get in now under ADCI they will pay for your upgrades. Now, while Youngs wont get you any extra certs, just the basics 90% of the oil companies want you to have "their certifications" that they pay for you to get, and pay you while you get them. You are still paying only 1400.00. and you are right there in morgan city. 10 guys out of my class had jobs setup with dive companiesand working the weekends within the first month of starting school. Only reason I didn't was over marital problems. All said, CDA is a good school from what I understand. But ask yourself "what exactly am I paying for, and which is a better choice for me"
