Aaron Griffin, the program coordinator for Seneca College's Underwater Skills Program is going to be hosting a seminar showcasing the historic MKV ("Mark 5") style diving helmet with proceeds being donated to the Steep N' Deep Project!
The event will consist of a diving history presentation and "heavy gear" orientation and 1943 US Navy diver dressing film. This will be followed by a dive in the UWS training tank with a 1934 Morse four light commercial dive helmet. Hero photos and classic red diver's knit cap for those tough enough to dive, climb the ladder unassisted and return to the bench!
This is a great opportunity to experience a history, check out Seneca's industry-leading diver training program and support the Steep N' Deep Project! More details to follow. Thank you Aaron and the Underwater Skills Program for continuing to support your graduates.
