Learn how to prevent, identify and manage dive accidents with these specially selected resources.

The Commercial Diver's Handbook

"The Commercial Diver's Handbook is a great resource for the working diver. Hard packed Commercial Divers Handbook.coverwith vital information for dive planning and essential for continuing review to keep supervisors sharp. Reviewing the content it is evident of the authors experience and knowledge within this industry recognizing the lack of such a publication.

The Commercial Diver's Handbook will provide the diver with tools to make good decisions. [It is] small enough to have on-hand, on-site, and while in transit for review and planning purposes. The worth of a handbook can only be judged by how usable and necessary the information contained within. I could see this Handbook as the diver's new best friend. I can only say [that Hal, the author, has] done an outstanding job pushing to compile such an important book for the dive side." -Charles Trombley, CPO1, RCN
