For the last seven years, NePSD has operated with the unwavering determination to elevate public safety diving from a random collection of skills to a refined and professional craft.
Over the years, we have met and trained hundreds of divers from a countless number of teams, often starting those divers over from scratch and rebuilding their fundamental public safety skills.
All in pursuit of well-rounded, highly capable, professional public safety divers.
This past weekend, our founder and head instructor, Tim Andro, finally completed a step that means we can take teams even further, and into increasingly specialized roles.
We are proud to announce that after three years of training and learning, Tim has earned his certification as a UCI Instructor.
UCI (Underwater Criminal Investigators), is widely considered the go-to gold-standard on all things related to criminal evidence underwater, and their training programs and experience are sought after by public safety divers worldwide, from small city teams to the FBI.
Their instructor program is also invitation-only and incredibly demanding… As it should be for such a high level of professional education.
Tim is only the fifth UCI Instructor ever certified.
With the blessing of UCI’s founder, the legendary Mike Berry, NePSD will now be offering what no other public safety dive trainers ever have…
The most comprehensive PSD certification training program available, plus the gold standard of underwater criminal evidence certifications. All in one place.
We want to thank Mike for his trust in Tim and the willingness to share what he’s spent 40+ years learning.
And stay tuned for new course offerings!
