For Veterans and Military Families

CDI is dedicated to the success of our veteran students and is proud to be operated by veterans. Because of our small program size, CDI staff is able to maintain thorough contact with each of our students, and our staff of former service members recognizes the unique needs of veterans and their families whether they are making their first adjustment into civilian life or just looking for a change in career. As our program grows, we are committed to increasing our outreach and resources specific to veterans as much as possible.


Commercial Divers International is proud to be a 2018 Military Friendly® Silver School.

GI BILL ® AND VR&E proudly accepted

CDI offers a $1000 scholarship to military veterans. To qualify, we ask that you provide proof of your current enlistment or discharge from active military service. The scholarship is applied directly to the cost of tuition upon admissions and cannot be used to pay for the application fee, diving physical, or required gear.


CDI’s facility is located approximately 12 miles from Luke Air Force Base provides a close proximity to military services.
