CALPIA’s Commercial Dive Program makes splash with re-dedication ceremony

The Leonard Greenstone Memorial Marine Technology Training Center, at California Institution for Men, certifies inmates in commercial diving and underwater welding. It offers offender the chance to change their life trajectory through high-paying jobs available when they are released. Less than 7 percent of the inmates who graduate from the program reoffend. After a two-year remodeling effort, the diving center was re-dedicated on Dec. 5.
