The Diver Certification Board of Canada certifies occupational divers, accredits schools which train occupational divers and presents the annual Canadian Underwater Conference and Exhibition.  For more details on the conference please click here.


The Diver Certification Board of Canada (DCBC) is a federally incorporated not-for-profit body which was originally set up to replace the offshore diver certification regime of the National Energy Board and the offshore petroleum boards.  DCBC is the only national body which certifies offshore and inshore occupational (commercial) divers in Canada.

The DCBC offers certification to occupational divers and supervisors who can demonstrate that they have sufficient training and experience to enable them to meet the competency requirements of the appropriate section of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Competency Standard for Diving, Hyperbaric Chamber, and Remotely Operated Vehicle Operations (CSA Standard Z275.4).


Certificates issued by the DCBC are recognized by Australia (ADAS), France, Norway, South Africa, the United Kingdom (HSE) and the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA).

The Diver Certification Board of Canada accredits occupational diver training organizations which train to the competency levels described in CSA Standard Z275.4.  Accredited occupational diver training organizations can also assess the competency of experienced occupational divers who were not trained at an accredited school.
