All Participants will be required to pass a PRT upon commencement of the training evolution. The minimum requirements are listed below. Though these are minimums, personnel should work to score beyond the minimums. PERSONNEL NOT PASSING THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS WILL BE SENT HOME AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FAMILY OR HOME UNIT. If approved for the training, applicants should plan to be participating in Physical Training every morning. An extensive Physical Training program, which will be conducted by the SCUBA Dive School Personnel and is a large part of the training schedule. To avoid confusion, an explanation of each of the exercises is provided below:


Sit Ups – Lie on your back with knees flexed and feet about 12 inches from buttocks. Partner holds feet. Arms are crossed with hands placed on opposite shoulders and elbows held close to chest. Keeping this arm position, Participant raises the trunk up to touch elbows to thighs DO NOT EXTEND ELBOWS TO TOUCH KNEES and then lowers the back to the floor so the scapulas (shoulder blades) touch the deck, for one sit up. If you extend your elbows to touch the knees, THAT REPETITION WILL NOT COUNT. Two minutes is allowed to complete as many correct sit-ups as possible. If rest is necessary during the 2 minutes, the Participant should rest in the up position. IF A STUDENT RESTS IN THE DOWN POSITION FOR TWO SECONDS OR MORE, THIS PORTION OF THE PT TEST WILL BE CONSIDERED OVER.
Push Ups – The Student lies face down in push-up position with hands under shoulders, fingers straight, and legs straight, parallel, and slightly apart, with the toes supporting the feet. The Participant straightens the arms, keeping the back and knees straight, then lowers the body towards the ground.

Swimmer Skills

Because much of the training at Dive School is in, on or around water, all Students MUST be proficient swimmers. It is important all Students are comfortable in an environment where there are waves; wind and where they will not be able to touch the bottom. From a safety standpoint, the Dive School staff cannot have anyone at the training that is not competent in the basics of swimming. Participants will be tested on swimming skills upon commencement of the training. The first part of the test will be in a pool, and the second part of the test will be an Ocean Swim. PERSONNEL NOT PASSING THE POOL PORTION OF THE SWIM QUALS WILL NOT ADVANCE TO THE OCEAN PORTION.

4. ADMINISTRATION / LOGISTICS.
a. Administration.

Application Procedures. After reading the LETTER OF INSTRUCTION and prior to applying to SCUBA Dive School, you will be required to attend and successfully pass an INDOC scheduled for 3 November 2012. Where you will complete a Physical Readiness Test, Swim skills assessment and a Dive Physical. Conducted by a certified Doctor, who will approve the student for diving operations. Failure to complete the INDOC will result in not being allowed to submit an application for training

Conduct and Behavior Standards

Student s attending Dive School are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that will not bring dishonor or discredit to themselves, the training, their home unit, or the Naval Sea Cadet Corps. Students will operate on a “buddy system.” Buddies will be assigned on the first day, and are expected to be together at all times. If a Student Selectee has any of the following personality traits, it will be best for everyone if they stay home:




  • Selfishness

  • Individualism

  • Negative attitudes

  • Malingering (Malingering is defined as an attempt to avoid or shirk work or duty, especially by pretending to be sick or injured)

  • Inability to work as part of the team

  • Disregard for rank or position.

Subject: LETTER OF INSTRUCTION (LOI) FOR THE CONDUCT OF SCUBA DIVE SCHOOL CLASS PR-01 ABOARD USCG AIR STATION BORINQUEN


Students will strive to become an integral part of a team. There is no room at Dive School for any of the above mentioned personality traits. DISPLAY OF THESE TRAITS WILL RESULT IN DISCIPLANARY ACTION UP TO AND INCLUDING AN EARLY RETURN TRIP HOME AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FAMILY OR HOME UNIT.
Participants should also keep their physical health in mind. If they injure themselves, it is their responsibility to ensure the Medical Officer is informed of the injury. Keeping injuries to yourself because of a desire to “stay with the team” is not smart and may result in permanent injury if not attended to properly. Personnel keeping their injuries from Dive School Staff , may result IN AN EARLY RETURN TRIP HOME AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FAMILY OR HOME UNIT.


Age / Rank Requirements

All personnel participating in SCUBA Dive School must be 16 YEARS OLD, no exception to this rule, as this is a Dive Certification requirement. Must have achieved the rank of E-3 prior to applying for training. Under special circumstances, E-2’s will be accepted for training. Special circumstances include the following:




  • An E-2 that is 17 years old and has completed Boot Camp but will age out of the program before the next year’s summer training evolution. Completion of the Seaman Course is highly recommended.

  • An E-2 has completed all of the requirements for E-3, has taken the Seaman Course and is only waiting for time in grade for promotion to E-3.

Midshipmen and Cadet Chief Petty Officers are authorized to train as Students in Dive School. If a Midshipman or Cadet Chief Petty Officer applies for Dive School, they must do so with a few understandings.




  • They will pay the training deposit, bunk and train alongside with the other Students.

  • They will be treated as Students, meaning they will not have any special “perks” because of their rank, though the staff will give the Midshipmen the respect required because of their rank.

  • They will be required to take on the leadership role as the Student Officer In Charge, Student Assistant Officer in Charge or Student Petty Officer in Charge.

  • With the exception of their dress uniform, the seabag requirements are the same for Midshipmen.

MEDICAL RESTRICTIONS: Trainees with pre-existing medical conditions that will affect training cannot be allowed to participate. While we want cadets to complete their training, safety is our first concern.

Discontinued use of required medication is not advised (this is not the time to see if Billy Bob can go 11 days without Ritalin).
The final determination of participation in training due to medical condition lies with the Commanding Officer, based on NSCC Regulations.

NO CELL PHONES ALLOWED FOR ANY CADETS. These cell phones will be secured during training and returned to cadet for their return travel. Failure to turn in cell phones or using cell phones during training will be grounds for dismissal.

PHYSICAL SECURITY: All personnel will feel safe in their training environment. There will be no hazing, acts of sexual harassment, or harassing by any trainee or staff.
