Premiere Public Safety Diver Training & Certification

Northeast Public Safety Divers

Turning Training, Into Responding

We Train to the Same Standards We Dive

All of our staff divers are current public safety divers and dive supervisors on active emergency dive teams.

We bring 100% of that experience to our students.

Northeast Public Safety Divers (NePSD) is a full-service public safety diver training service, that is fully mobile to bring dive courses right to you.

We are 100% committed to elevating the craft of public safety divers through proven training programs backed by the leading certifying agency for public safety divers, Emergency Response Diving International (ERDI).

We Refuse To “Just Teach Skills”

All of our courses come packed to the brim with experience-driven operational techniques. Students learn exceptional dive skills, and where those skills fit into an emergency operation.

We teach the whole package. With passion.

It was one of the most rigorous but rewarding classes I have ever taken

Learn More. Be Better.

What Are We Doing Differently


All of the NePSD Staff divers are, at a minimum, Master SCUBA divers and ERDI Dive Supervisors, along with being active firefighters and heavy rescue technicians. Some of our divers are also deep tech divers, with thousands of wreck dives.

The combination of all that experience means students are “drinking from the firehose” during our courses.


Safety is non-negotiable at our courses. There will be staff divers, equipped, and in the water before a single student gets wet. Our staff is attentive and fully focused on a safe training environment.

To ensure the safest environment possible, we arrive fully equipped to conduct a safe diving operation. Secondary and tertiary rescue options are the norm.


Our Staff divers are not here for fame or fortune. We teach because we love to dive, and sometimes have to be told to shut-up to stop the flow of information.

We are also dedicated firefighters, EMTs, and heavy rescue technicians that put our skills to use every day helping others. Sharing those skills is something we deeply believe in.

Passion and Skill Are The Hallmarks of NePSD Training

“You and your instructors provide an excellent and consistent experience.”

It’s Time to Elevate Our Craft.
