BIG Decision

I joined this group to read comments on the Ocean Corp to compare it's NDT program to the one offered at Sparton College of Aeronautics and Tech.  If possible can I get some honest thoughts and/or experiences some may of had while attending the Ocean Corp. NDT program.  Not complaints about cig. butts being on the ground but information that will educate me on my decision.

Thanks

Chris

A means to an end or and end to a means?

Diving has for many years been a career for many. The Love for ones career can be seen in the success and achievement within years of practice.

However, several amongst many today see this career(Diving) as a "get in an get out", defacing the profession at the detriment of those who find joy in this career practice.

If you intend to sit and dine with the elders, then you must either think and act like one or grow old enough to be referred as one. This prompts me to call on the…
