Hi,\
\
I\'m considering a career as a commercial diver. I\'m 36, former Royal Marine and private security operative but I have a criminal record with a sentence of 5 years. Is the commercial diving industry strict on CRB/DBS checks?

Depends where you want to work. U.K. Civils, unless maybe for the MOD wouldn't be a problem, offshore ditto, but if you have to start applying for visa's etc for work overseas then you'll come up against a wall. I work with people who have done a few ears and they get on ok, but they've had to pull out of a lot of potential jobs overseas.
