    is anyone here navy EOD? i had a few questions regarding the training. i know before you go to actual EOD school you do 9 weeks of dive training, but i'd like to know what the atmosphere is like there and what exactly you do in each phase.

    thanks.

    I'm in barracks with a bunch of Navy Divers going through the phases right now. They do a fuckload of PT, but that's obvious.

    it has nothing to do with udt, underwater demolition teams don't even exist anymore. those were the seal teams pre-1970.

    navy eod school is 9 weeks of dive school in panama city, then 42 weeks of eod training, army airborne school, then ett (eod tactical training).

    no, you go through underwater demolition training in bud/s. it's part of third phase.

    the navy eod guys go through 9 weeks of dive school at the naval diving and salvage training center in panama city. it's exactly that, dive school. you learn scuba and the closed-circuit (no bubbles) draeger LAR-V. the main purpose of the training is to learn everything about diving. later on in eod school you learn about underwater mines and torpedoes. the navy guys have to learn how to dive so that they can disarm the ordnance underwater.
