NUPI_LogoThe National University Polytechnic Institute (NUPI) boasts specialized diversity in its program concentration offerings. Once students plunge in to learn underwater welding, they’ll be greeted with the hundreds of challenges that commercial divers face in their career. Instructors will teach proper decompression, provide team building exercises and cutting and welding techniques.

Located on the west coast, NUPI gives students the chance to interact with ship vessels, hyperbaric chambers and huge volumes of water, including a 44,000 gallon tank. NUPI is accredited through top organizations like the Association of Commercial Diving Educators (ACDE) and the Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI).
