    The focus of a commercial diving school is more towards teaching you enough to be a tender rather then a diver. Most commercial divers already have a useful skill before they start. You will learn the basics but you will not be proficient until you learn more on the job. I would suggest finding a commercial diving company that specializes in areas of interest to you and work with them. It is easier to teach a good welder to dive then it is to teach a diver to be a good welder. The only commercial divers I ever met who could not swim were both welders. The diving part is just the way you get to the job.
