    Millionaire? Sure, someday. Not overnight, though.

    I did see some informative links here ... but the range is from not enough to pay rent to thousands a week.

    Most of them agree, though, that it's like any other specialty field: Depends on your skills and who you work for.

    This was along time ago, but they make very well, when one of my children was born, the women in the bed next to my wife , her husband was an underwater diver.

    Not much of a family life, since they spend most of their time on the rigs, or in stand by. I understood pay was more around 1500 a day when you worked, and a lot less a day if you are on standby

    But the gentleman I talked to did it in the rivers and lakes ( mostly bridges)

    Also don't expect to get the highest paying job out of training, most likely you will work at some of the starting jobs, or smaller companies till you get experience. No one starts at the top.
