A commercial diver is a professional who is paid to go underwater to do specific tasks (Commercial Diving Vancouver Canada).
There are a number of areas that a commercial diver can work in, such as:
- deep sea exploration
- and photography
Commercial divers typically work for construction, engineering, shipping, and oil companies.
Here in Canada qualified divers work mostly in freshwater such as rivers, lakes, and even dams. Divers help survey or build bridges and dams.
Basic requirements for a commercial diver include the ability to work under stressful conditions. They need to have a high stamina, be physically fit, and be a good swimmer. A diver also needs to work well with others. Most of the work that they perform will be part of a team effort. Additionally, a commercial diver needs to understand certain things such as surface supplied diving, physics, decompression, underwater tools, anatomy, and dive medicine.
