The Combat Diver Qualification Course (CDQC) is one of the most physically and mentally demanding training opportunities for cadets. Training is held at the United States Naval Air Station in Key West, Florida for 4 weeks. Combat divers are trained in waterborne operations to include day and night ocean subsurface navigation swims, day and night team infiltration dives, deep dives, diving physics, marine hazards, tides and currents, submarine lock-in/lock-out familiarization, and closed-circuit and open-circuit dives.
