LUMCON Scientific Diver Training
Scientific Diver-in-Training, commonly referred to as a DIT, is the beginning point for most scientific divers. Generally, a DIT is also a scientist, or scientist-in-training. The training process for a DIT to become a scientific diver is extensive, at least 100 hours minimum. LUMCON is at present the only American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) designated training facility in the State of Louisiana. Scientific diver certification is required by most academic and government agencies who utilize diving as a research tool for marine science including biology, chemistry, biomedical, engineering and geosciences, and for all diving work conducted in association with LUMCON. — more info on LUMCON Scientific Diver Training.
