I am Antonio Arcucci, NAUI Lifetime Member #8292. I became a NAUI Instructor in 1985 (1st NAUI Italian ITC), currently holding the NAUI Course Director Designation. My full time job, since 1985, is operating a full service dive center “Capri Mare Club” as owner/operator.
In 2009 I became a Master of Rescue, and I have trained hundreds of Lifeguards.
Despite the passage of nearly 30 years since my certification of NAUI Instructor, I still teach with the same passion and pride to my students, whether they are beginners or instructor candidates.
From the beginning I have always believed in the NAUI’s philosophy "DIVE SAFETY THROUGH EDUCATION" choosing when in Italy was virtually unknown and always doing everything possible to bring the NAUI brand top.
Stronger than my thirty years of experience in managing a diving industry, and having lived to 360 ° NAUI, my goal as a Board member is mainly to reach in Europe and especially in Italy NAUI recognition as a major educational organizations. I know well the obstacles that limit the development and popularization of NAUI in these areas and am willing to bet that the NAUI will come back to enjoy the account that belongs to it.
I would work for this in the NAUI Board of Directors.
Answers To The
BOD Election Questions
1. For high standards, for professionalism and thoroughness of both recreational courses and those technical and leadership
2. Surely in this time of economic crisis, a solution might be to try to minimize the costs to operators that are really high and then automatically flock to the final consumer. As costs mean that the equipment over matters relating to teaching materials which, especially here in Italy are really high and increase the cost of the courses that become inaccessible to the middle class and this is reflected automatically on the industry Underwater general
3. No doubt the new standards fully meet me.
