PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

With the Chief Pilot Course (CPC), you’ll achieve the highest rated level and knowledge to become the most skilled submersible pilot. The training involves all topics covered for the Surface Officer (SO) training, and builds on the Private Pilot Training with more in-depth practical training dives and a larger theory curriculum.

The Chief Pilot Course (CPC) is a comprehensive integrated training program where theory- and diving lessons are mixed, giving you an exciting balance between academic studies and hands-on diving experience. In the first stages of pilot training, you will be conducting all of your dives under the strict supervision of the pilot instructor.

As you progress you will start learning how to hover the submersible. You begin to dive further away from the home base and become efficient in handling the submersible. In the second stage of your training, you will start practicing what is known as instrument diving. The goal of this stage is to enable you to dive regardless of environments. As soon as you master the basics in this submersible much of the training focuses on handling different abnormal procedures and emergencies.

When you have completed the Course you will be certified as a Chief Pilot and a Surface Officer (SO) since SO training is included in this course.
