Who Hires Our Grads

“DIT provided me with a great diving education that helped to prepare me for the industry. I had no trouble getting a job after graduation.”

– Janelle Wenner

DIT graduates are well prepared for work in our industry. Most have a military or mechanical background and a good understanding of the requirements of this trade.

Over the next 10 years, the Diving Community in the United States will need more than 6,000 commercial divers. Commercial diving is a growing industry and will provide steady employment opportunities. Field jobs continue to grow due to the crumbling infrastructure in and around our waterways. Recent floods have led to a high demand for commercial divers to inspect & repair dams, bridges, and other structures. Another growing trend has been the replacement or installation of fiber optic cables on the ocean floor.
