From Cleaning Boats and anti-fouling, to diving for Scallops or using a hard hat and surface air or mixed gas. Public Safety Diving, ROV- UW-Welding, Cutting, Artificial Reef Building.
Many divers with Sports Certifications are actually breaking the law in many Countries as they are not engaged in sports or recreational diving but deemed in some Countries to be "Commercial Diving"... This may seem confusing so we offer a clear definition below.
Any aspect of diving operations not directly associated with recreational diving, as Sports or Technical Diving activities and where divers are paid for services as income or in kind, is generally considered to be "AT WORK" Diving and therefore "Occupational". pro-diving is covered by ITDA Standards...
