New Divers Entering the UMD Scientific Diving Program
New scientific divers wishing to enter the University of Maryland's Scientific Diving Program should allow plenty of time to complete the program requirements. All application materials and medical forms are contained in the Program Application Packet. Once your application is complete, submit it to the Dive Safety Officer to begin training.
Divers entering University of Maryland with a current scientific diving certification from another AAUS organizational member may be granted reciprocity, and should arrange for verification of their status by their previous DSO.
