Because of the comparative newness of the deep submergence vehicle and the business of selecting and training new operators, a standard set of procedures do not exist. A firm program will only resolve itself after a number of operators have been successfully trained and qualified. Subsequent additions, deletions and revisions to the system will be made as the experience level increases. Background and experience requirements are not firm at this point - they will be flexible to fit the abilities and background of the particular individual and organization. Minimum selection requirements such as physical and psychological fitness, integrity, maturity and judgment must, of necessity, be defined however. Other selection requirements may be altered to fit the individual.
