Job Description

The U.S. Army, a key component of the U.S. Armed Forces, is made up of the best-trained, most dedicated, most respected Soldiers in the world — protecting America’s freedoms at home and abroad, securing our homeland, and defending democracy worldwide. A Soldier in the U.S. Army is the embodiment of physical strength, emotional strength, and strength of purpose. As a Soldier, you will be prepared to serve our country whenever and wherever you are needed, combat-ready at all times, trained to counter any threat, anywhere.


Not all Army operations take place on land. Sometimes, repair, construction and patrolling take place beneath the surface. An Engineer Diver in the Army performs such tasks as reconnaissance, demolition, and salvage, all while being underwater. As an Army Diver, you'll specialize either as a scuba diver, who works just below the surface of the water, or as a deep sea diver, who usually works for long periods of time in depths of up to 190 feet.

Some of your duties as a Diver may include:

• Inspect and clean watercraft propellers and hulls

• Patch damaged watercraft hulls using underwater welding equipment

• Salvage sunken equipment

• Patrol the waters below watercraft at anchor

• Assist with underwater construction of piers and harbor facilities

• Survey rivers, beaches, and harbors for underwater obstacles

• Use explosives to clear underwater obstacles

The skills you'll learn as an Army Diver will help prepare you for a future with oil companies, salvage companies, underwater construction firms and police or fire rescue units. You'll receive diving certifications that could help you in the civilian world. Operating and maintaining deep sea merchant ships, tugboats, ferries, excursion vessels and other watercraft may also be career options for you to consider.


The job of a Diver may be the right fit for you if you have an interest in mechanics and building, an ability to stay calm under stress, an interest in underwater diving, a high degree of self-reliance, are an excellent swimmer, and are physically strong.


Job training for a Diver requires nine weeks of Basic Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and 29 weeks of Advanced Individual Training and on-the-job instruction, including practice in diving and repair work. Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field. Some of the skills you'll learn are:

• Principles of scuba and surface-supplied diving

• Underwater welding and cutting

• Use and care of hand and power tools

• Maintenance of diving equipment

• Explosives

As an active duty Soldier, you’ll be eligible for:

• Up to $4,500 a year in tuition assistance, while on active duty

• Up to $85,536 for college

• Up to $65,000 to repay qualifying student loans

• Up to $40,000 enlistment bonus

• Medical and dental care

• 30 days

of vacation with earned each year

Job Requirements


• U.S. citizen or permanent resident alien

• 17–34 years old

• Healthy and in good physical condition

• In good moral standing

• High School or equivalent education
