Santa Barbara City College


SBCC LogoDivided into two semesters, the Marine Diving Technology Training program at Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) takes students from topside construction to deep-sea repair in no time. This west coast college provides additional flexibility for students who desire to both work and take classes, though part-time schedules may extend coursework into another semester or two.

With accreditation through both the Association of Commercial Diving Educators (ACDE) and National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI), students will receive an education that will prepare them for professional commercial diving underwater welding.
