Diver Underwater Force Protection Open to personnel who hold either a military, police or recognised civilian diving qualification. Entry will normally be at Rating level with the exception of those ex-Royal Navy Officers who hold military diving qualifications. Entrants will be subject to a full Service diving medical and an assessment weekend prior to being admitted to the specialisation. As an Underwater Force Protection Diver, you will be trained to air dive to 21 metres as part of a specialist diving team. Full diving training on Service diving equipment will be given and you will be required to keep your diving skills up to date at weekends. Teams may frequently deploy outside the UK. The role will primarily involve underwater searches and minor repair work.
