Navy Dive School – Scuba Class 06010

June 30, 2010 on 5:01 pm | In Scuba | 25 Comments


My Naval SCUBA Dive class (06010) This is not the kind of stuff that I had planned to upload, but seeing how I had it, and some people I knew were asking about it, I thought I would make an exception. A lot of people ask on how to become a diver, and though I must reiterate that this only a Navy SCUBA class, the advice is the same. Practice and stay in the game. The game is mental, so if you tell yourself you can do it, and really believe it, you can. To clear any misconception that there may have been, and to prevent anyone from getting hurt, please do not practice negatives in water alone. Holding your breath in water is dangerous, and should not be taken lightly. If you are on compressed air and try this, there could be serious problems. If you are going to practice negatives, please do so in a safe, controlled environment. For those of you who think this is not a dive class, regardless of length (This class actually took 6 weeks) or actual type of dive (SCUBA), you can just move a long. There is no need for you to post a comment as it will most likely just be deleted. But thanks for your interest and thanks for watching.

  1. @oblivionlova23 – Yes, ND (Navy Diver) has this for A school. In fact, I believe they go through more training. What is shown on the video is only the Scuba section.

  2. @divepromichael1 – This was not the original soundtrack. But according to youtube, the original soundtrack violated some copyright laws. So I had to pick a song from the youtube archives that matched as closely as possible while being long enough to cover the video. This was the best I could do.

  5. @23usmc23 – As far as I know, active duty members changing over to reserves do not need to go to basic or to another school as long as you change into the same MOS. You would be stationed at home and do your drill wherever you sign up for.
    If you were a diver, then you should be good to go and not have to go to school. Your post would most likely be close to home. If not, I am not sure they send reserves to dive school. The only schools are those I mentioned before.

  7. @23usmc23 – I am not really sure… I don’t see why not, but you would really have to discuss that with a recruiter. Doing anything in the Navy is really based off the needs of the Navy, and they are better qualified to answer what positions are open.
    It doesn’t matter where you live, it matters where you are stationed. Of course, reservists are different. The only two schools I know of are in Pensacola and Pearl Harbor.

  9. @leksss4 – Not sure it’s the same. Glasses are okay, but corrective surgery is suggested. To be a SEAL or special forces, perfect vision is required.

  13. whats the ASVAB score required to be a rescue swimmer? i got a 61 as overall grade on my asvab. do u think that’s good enough for the rescue swimmer program?

    Comment by chuy0000 — Wednesday, June 30, 2010 #

  14. Yes, these are minimum numbers and yes you want to do your best. Don’t go with just the minimum. There is also a swim that you have to do.

    Comment by amoxaphobic — Wednesday, June 30, 2010 #

  15. @tripuskas

    these are recommended numbers and not the needed right? I was told 40-50 push-ups/sit-ups, 6 pull ups, and a 1.5 mile in under 13 min.

    I just wanna make it more clear, as I’m sure you want to exceed the minimum obviously.

  16. @FutureNavyDiver Be ready to make swimming and water your life. Train hard they want the best of the best not some wimps. Also be careful on how you perform. You must not show any sign of weakness. AT ALL.

  17. whats up man im a depper too in the navy waiting for bootcamp. im trying to pass the pst though to get reclassed as a diver, but havent taken it yet. how was it?

  18. Check out the Naval Dive Salvage Training Center Website (just Google it). All class convening/graduation dates are listed there. Do it! It’s just a nice way to get paid to P.T. while awaiting Nuke school.

  19. First, focus on ensuring you know your stuff at RTC Great Lakes. Keep your PT scores high and your nose clean. As for Dive School… Ensure you are VERY comfortable i the water and that you can do plenty of Push-ups, Sit-ups, Flutter Kicks, and Pull-ups. Here’s the no-kidding numbers… 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 15 pull-ups, sub-10 minute 500 yard swim, and sub-10 minute 1.5 mile run… You should be able to hit these numbers EVERY TIME. If you can, Dive School will be just fine.

  20. I just joined the Navy and I can’t wait to go to bootcamp and then Dive school. I can’t wait. Anyone know what I should expect at dive school?

  21. Hey man the Navy Dave program is close to the Sepcial Warfare Program that the Seals and all those other Specail forced go threw. You can be part of a Seal Team an EOD team an board a Ship or repair and welding and all that types of duties. It all depends on the type of duty you get selected for after you graduate the school if you do. Make sure your ASVAB score is high enough. I am a rescue swimmer in the navy so i work with Divers pretty often when on deplyment.

  22. As far as I know, in order to be the dive officer on a submarine, you just need to go to SCUBA school, as that’s all they do. All other divers will be an actual dive group at that base.

    Not sure about the application process, or the dates. I don’t see why you couldn’t apply, but it may be hard to actually get accepted. It’s all based on the needs of the Navy, as you know.

    Sorry, wish I could help more.

  23. I’m in my last year at the Citadel and i just got accepted into Nuke Power School in Charleston–I have heard that I can apply to go to dive school before I start classes there and I was wondering exactly what school they would send me to in order to be a dive-qualified officer on a sub? Do you know where i can find the start and complete dates for this training? Thanks!

  24. First, I was a submarine scuba diver, so I am not sure what the day to day activities and duties are.
    I will email you the rest…

  25. I have looked up everywhere for more info in navy diving. I am considering joining but I want to know EXACTLY what Ill be doing… What are your main jobs as a navy diver. Do you live a normal day still, after you complete all the training. AND the most important one, Does all the training count on your “4″ 8 years singup or does that start after your graduate everything. And how is pay, and what do you plan on doing after the navy. work wise.
