There is only one reason why we've dedicated over 40 years to developing the finest recreational diving instructors in the world and supporting them with the most stringent recreational diving safety standards... that reason is you.
Scuba diving is an adventure sport, and as such, it has inherent risks. NAUI understands this. We also understand that the only way to minimize risk is to maximize education. There are many scuba certification programs available today, but there is only one that can be called a scuba education program. And, education is the true NAUI difference.
To earn the coveted NAUI Instructor rating our Instructor candidates undergo a grueling leadership training program requiring extensive diving knowledge and superior water skills. At every step they are challenged to make independent and correct decisions and value judgments regarding the level of risk inherent in all types of diving situations.
Those who successfully complete this exceptional program become NAUI Instructors and are granted the freedom to adapt their teaching to meet the individual and regional needs of their students... individuals like you.
