Naval Diving Unit (Singapore)
The Naval Diving Unit (NDU) is a special force of the Republic of Singapore Navy, and is regularly tasked in salvage operations, underwater mine demolition and commando-type warfare.
Basic training includes Drown Proofing Training, Pool Competency, Fast Roping, Improvised Explosive Device Disruption, Underwater Mine Disposal and Explosive Ordnance Disposal. NDU divers are also regularly sent overseas for training, in particular, with the US Army's elite Green Berets, US Navy SEAL and the British Special Air Service. In 2001, naval officer Wong Foo Chan became the first foreigner to top his class in the Green Berets course, and received a commendation medal for this achievement. He had also completed the Navy SEAL course in 1999.
