On the road again…

Co-hosts John O’Brien and Chris Martin took the show on the road. This time their field trip landed them at the Carpenter’s Dive School in Sicklerville, NJ.

After touring the facility they sat down with Tim Waring, the training coordinator at the Sicklerville Dive School. This school is the first UBC (United Brotherhood of Carpenters) dive center. 

Waring explains that commercial diving involves tasks such as welding, burning, and piling underwater. It’s like being an underwater pile driver, where the skills used in above-ground construction are transferred to underwater projects.

The Dive School allows for the training of both divers and pile drivers. It’s seen as an additional skill to enhance a pile driver’s capabilities, providing more opportunities for work.

Listen to learn more about what the school has to offer young individuals interested in becoming carpenters or pile drivers.
