At PFDI, we specialize in providing Public Safety personnel with the training and skills needed to safely execute all public safety diving scenarios. Successful completion of our programs not only ensures the diver possess the skills, but also possesses the training and expertise needed for proper documentation of a scene and courtroom preparation. Our diving professionals offer training courses certified by ERDI, SDI, TDI and PADI.  

Our classes courses comply with OSHA and NFPA standards.

Although the majority of our courses are specifically designed to meet the needs of public safety agencies at the local, state and federal levels, we can also meet the needs of volunteer search and recovery teams in smaller locales.

Proper training and skill development can assist your team in executing their missions more efficiently and effectively, leading to more successful resolutions.
