navy philippine and uS navy Seabee Divers Conduct Joint training During exercise By CeC (SCW/MDV) terenCe JuerGenS SANGLEy PoINT, PHILIPPINES - "GREEN Diver, back down the latter until your helmet's awash" - "Make it hot", and "Switch off" were some common phrases one could hear echo from the combined Philippine and U.S. Navy dive side. During the month of May both nations partnered in support of Subject Matter Expert Exchanges involving port/harbor recovery scenarios during this year's Exercise Balikatan. Throughout nine grueling days of high heat and periodic down pours Underwater Construction Team (UCT) TWO trained eight Philippine Navy (PN) UCT divers on topics including; surface supplied diving systems and procedures, underwater cutting and welding techniques and procedures, diving casualty management and neurological examinations. From the makeshift classroom to underwater employment all PN Divers received immensely valuable training that goes hand in hand with the strategic goals of Balikatan 2014. "The Philippino divers are outstanding, resourceful and very attentive," said Builder 2nd Class (SCW/DV) Joseph Hophan, the project supervisor for UCT TWO's Construction Diving Detachment Charlie (CDD/C). "We had to take a crawl, walk, run approach to our mission here in the Philippines. Diving is already very dangerous, when you add cutting and welding to the equation your focus shifts toward safety and the steps we take to mitigate risk. They did great and learned at an impressive rate." Each PN diver was given a project to practice various types of welds. Once they felt comfortable with what they learned during topside (dry) welding they were put to the test underwater. Seabee Divers from the Philippine and US Navy Underwater Construction Teams prepare to execute a joint dive during exercise Balikatan in Sangley Pt, Philippines to practice underwater cutting and welding. Conducting mil-to-mil training during exercise Balikatan in the Philippines is the 4th of 7 stops spanning 6 countries across the Pacific for members of Underwater Construction Team Two's Construction Dive Detachment Charlie. They'll be conducting inspection, maintenance and repair of various underwater and waterfront facilities along with participation in 4 PACFLT exercises during their 6 month PACOM deployment.
