You're right.fc2spyguy said:Not true, there is a dive qual that submariners can get. One of the guys in my NSI class was dive qualed Navy style to check the sub prior to underway. I don't know what he had to do, but he was a sub ET (non-nuke) that had a dive pin and did that stuff.
They get a SCUBA qual, not Deep Sea. (Scuba is like 4 or 5 weeks, Deep Sea is twenty, but officers im sure get teh 1st class and master diver course too, so its even longer...)
Deep Sea (what Thisguy was talking about with BDO)
SCUBA (what etnuclearsailor wants...)
