Keys Marine Laboratory


This workshop is designed to provide an opportunity for newly trained, or inexperienced, American Academy of Underwater Science (AAUS) Divers-in- Training (DIT) to gain proficiency in scientific diving techniques. Upon completion, the DIT will have successfully earned their 30 ft diver rating while gaining useful knowledge on common science diving skills. It also allows the opportunity for previously trained, and active, 30 ft divers to maintain their status, as required by AAUS Standards Section 5.60, by providing dives that contribute to the annual number of dives required to maintain their depth rating.

This workshop is NOT intended to train beginning scientific divers. Instead, it offers the opportunity to advance or maintain their current scientific diver status while learning skills crucial to conducting research. This is an intensive (32 hour minimum) four day workshop hosted by the Florida Institute of Oceanography at the Keys Marine Lab (KML). Last minute cancellation due to unsafe weather conditions, at the discretion of KML staff, may require rescheduling (backup dates or next session).
