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
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.
Our Promise to You
The combination of exceptional leadership, sound educational materials, and true
concern for the individual, has resulted in the most respected safety record in
the recreational diving community. So, when you enroll in a NAUI diving program,
you can be assured you're receiving the finest diving education available. Our instructors
won't accept anything less... and neither should you.
