if i can give you any advice before you spend any money is get in touch with the companies first, find out if they are crewing up or will be, start at the bottom do anything to get your foot on the ladder, you have boat experience i see no reason why you shouldn't get on a crew if you have the above tickets don't sell yourself short because you dont have construction experience you won't be chucked in at the deep end.
when i bring new divers into a team i look for willingness to muck in and learn part of the team their skills will come with time, of course they have to have the relevant tickets and the basic skills are taught in the dive school anyway. it's up to them then.

good luck

Wot he said, give me someone eager & willing to learn that can get out of bed on a morning, over a qualified lazy bstard any day. If you show willing, any company worth working for will train you up.

That’s because you would working from a vessel and STCW are required for the merchant navy just like OPITO quals are used for O&G industry and GWO quals for renewable sectors. Just a huge money making scheme for training providers as a lot of the courses are indentical just tweaked to make it more relevant for the workplace concerned.
