Hey John, Thanks for follow-up on job board issue. I understand you're working on it. Good luck! However, your response leads me to now ask, Have we lost all previous submitted personal resume data on the job board page? Regards, Steve

Not affiliated with DIT at all other than to complete your form, it was required you enter a dive school and my oldest son attended the school 18 years ago.

Back in 1998 when the USCG first proposed to revise the 46CFR I was an active participant meeting in Washington with Diane Kalina pushing for some basic changes and then submitting a lengthy comparison between the current CFR and the ADC proposal.

1. hold the contractors responsible, not the supervisors
2. training requirements for divers, licensing
3. dive supervisor licensing
4. requirements for back up equipment, regardless of depth of dive or size entity
5. requirements for back up divers, regardless of depth of dive or size entity

The list goes on most of which was covered in the USCG hearings held in Port Arthur Texas in June of 1999. In 2001 the then Commandant endorsed virtually everything we were looking for and then the Coast Guard moved on to other endeavors dictated by the mandates of the events of 9-11 and all efforts were lost, the regulations stayed as is.

You only need look at what has transpired over the past 10 years to see that nothing has been learned and nothing has changed. Look no further then the events under the USCG Healy two years ago were two USCG divers died. No tender, no back up diver, un inspected equipment, no qualified supervisor, no dive plan, no emergency plan...............................

I may not be a commercial diver and I no longer have a dog in this fight but I did promise in my son's eulogy I would do my best to make a difference.

Now I see the fight begins again,
