International travel, exciting work and ample progression opportunities: a career
in underwater inspection is not short of benefits.
If you have a commercial diving licence, or an interest in diving and a desire to
get one, moving into underwater inspection gives you the opportunity to turn an
enjoyable activity into a ticket to see the world and a rewarding career.
Over the last few decades TWI has delivered training to hundreds of divers from
all over the world at its specialist facilities. Courses are currently offered in
Middlesbrough in the UK, Baku in Azerbaijan and Chonburi in Thailand – each venue
featuring modern diving equipment and hosting training provided by experienced industry
For UK-based trainees, TWI is the only place in the country where divers can carry
out their training and gain CSWIP certification in the same location. Once qualified
you will be eligible to work all over the world: CSWIP certification is the internationally
recognised industry standard, and a specified requirement of many employers.
There are four courses available in TWI’s underwater inspection suite: 3.1U NDT
Inspection Diver, 3.2U NDT Inspection Diver, 3.3U ROV Inspector and 3.4U Underwater
Inspection Controller. They combine classroom-based theory with practical tuition,
either in a dive tank or topside, depending on the programme.
Each qualification requires recertification every five years, to refresh divers’
knowledge and ensure their skills are up to date. This can be carried out at any
of TWI’s underwater training facilities.
