Diving Safety
(eligibility restricted to qualified personnel only)

Eligibility and membership in this committee is determined by the ADA safety officers. They set the standards and further training by the committee is required. Generally, they observe members who have sufficient diving experience, leadership ability, and a proper attitude and recruit them. ADA's first concern is safety and has stringent requirements for safety officers. It has helped us to maintain an accident free record for more than a quarter of a century!
