Applicants should note that the ADCI Consensus Standards [Section 3] requires all applicants for Commercial Diver Certification Cards to have all dives necessary for granting certification to have been performed within a 24-month period immediately prior to issuance of the designation. This standard has been adopted to ensure a continuous sequence of participation and maintenance of skills necessary to Safety perform commercial diving activities.

If you have not had an ADCI Certification Card before, you must include a photo and a copy of your dive school diploma or certificate of completion with your application.  Normal processing time is  2 - 6 weeks.
