Diving into underwater welding takes guts.
But most people give up before they've even began their underwater welding career. That's where this guide comes in - it gives you a step-by-step approach to underwater welding.
Though the career is extremely rewarding, training is intense, labor is tough and turnover rates are high.
To properly prepare you for your professional diving career, we've created an underwater welding book and materials that provides a realistic perspective on every aspect of underwater welding and commercial diving. This has been no small undertaking:
We've spoken with hundreds of experts in the fields of SCUBA and commercial diving, engineering, construction, inspection, education and management. With input from these various industries, you can learn about underwater welding from all angles.
Underwater welders engage in some of the most exciting, challenging - and occasionally dangerous - work in the depths. They don't take this work lightly, and neither should you.
We've prepared all kinds of insanely helpful resources that will energize your journey into underwater welding.

I have no interest in leaving you high and dry as you prepare to become an underwater welder. That's why I've created a full list of resources that will set you up for success before you've even applied to an underwater welding school.
When you buy Electricity Meets Water: Practical Guide to Underwater Welding, you're not just buying a book. These tools will equip you for a bright future that will keep you going under pressure.
Subject to the guide version you buy, you'll get these amazing tools:
The eBook comes with any guide package. It's called "Electricity Meets Water: Practical Guide to Underwater Welding - Train to Succeed as a Commercial Diver."
I've spent two years creating it, and I couldn't be more proud. At almost 45,000 words, this has been written and crafted to prepare the way in your underwater welding training and career. Focusing on everything from dive school research to equipment to how underwater welding works, this eBook will put you on a fast track to success.
This actually comes in the form of several chapters within the eBook. Still, I believe it deserves its own special place as you won't find this type of information easily - online or offline. Just as office jobs require diplomas, underwater welding employers look for certification in their applicants. I've provided an in-depth, simplified look at underwater welding certification so that you can get exactly what you need for your career.
The audio version is also included in any package you buy. We don't all have time to dedicate to sitting down and reading, page by page. That's why I've added a professional audio version. Whether you're on the go or just simply prefer a human voice to words, this is created for you.
Learning about underwater welding and commercial diving is great. But no one knows better than underwater welders themselves. That's why we've included 4 incredible stories from the perspectives of those who've been a part of this career. Their fresh perspective will give you a first-hand account of intense underwater construction training.
As you'll soon learn, going to underwater welding school in itself isn't enough to land you a position. Many underwater welders work as contractors, self-employed. To stick out among the sea of divers, you need a strategy. This marketing guide will highlight your diving skillset and put you where your resume in a place that employers can find it.
We've compiled the best resources for your underwater welding training and career in one place. These include the top books, manuals, equipment inventories and diver insurance. Oh, and one thing we're particularly proud of: A Networking Resource - an exclusive creation that includes the absolute best places for an underwater welder to find other divers and employers!

I think it is the best compilation of experience and education for a new or young commercial divers out there! As an "old hand" myself, divers can be way too opinionated, but Matt does a great job of bringing it together.
This book is really a good introductory guide that will allow non-initiates to have a good overview of this particular profession and guide them through the maze that leads to it.
Electricity Meets Water: Practical Guide to Underwater Welding is the most comprehensive and all encompassing work about commercial diving that I've ever seen. This book goes beyond the realm of welding and gives the reader a detailed look into what it takes to be a commercial diver. From stories about individual divers' experiences to recommendations on the best gear to purchase, this book is filled with useful information.
If you've ever been curious about this field of work then this is the book for you!
To say this book is a comprehensive guide to underwater welding would be an understatement. Matt Smith from waterwelders.com has put together an invaluable source of information for anyone considering a career as a commercial diver.
All divers should own a copy. Electricity Meets Water was written with passion, and it shows. Frankly it's hard for me not to desire a career in commercial diver after reading.
This is a very informative introduction to the realities of commercial diving. You won't find this information in the text books. I found much of it useful in helping me prepare for the challenges to come.
