Types of Scientific Diving

Diving

The Scientific Diving Program is based on the Canadian Association of Underwater Science (CAUS) standards and is administered by the UBC Diver Control Board (DCB).

The standards for diving safety are outlined in the UBC Dive Safety Manual (WORD), which are guided by the CAUS Dive Safety Manual (PDF).

To be considered as an applicant for the Science Diving Program, you must be a part of an Approved Project. Please contact the Dive Safety Officer (DSO) if you are not running an independent program but are interested to volunteer for one and become qualified.

To register for scientific diving qualification, please contact the Dive Safety Officer (DSO).
