UNDERWATER
WELDING

This course is for verified commercial divers. To learn how to weld underwater, see our Air/Mixed Gas Surface Supplied Diver program which includes underwater welding training. 

The International Diving Institute offers a 2 week, 80 hour course which covers the training you need to test for a Lloyd’s Register Underwater Welder certification. The course culminates with a practical test proctored by a Lloyd’s Register Surveyor through American Welding Society (AWS). Welding certifications are typically required when performing emergency welds on ships, as well as certain load-bearing or critical structures. Lloyd’s Register provides an internationally-recognized certification.
