The NAUI Instructor Crossover Course (ICC) is designed to train and qualify applicants in good standing with non-NAUI recreational scuba training organizations as a NAUI Instructor member. During the course, candidate instructors learn effective methods to teach skin and scuba diving in compliance with NAUI Diving Course Standards.
Minimum age is 18 years for this program. Certification as a scuba instructor with a minimum of one year experience and has taught or assisted with at least two diving instruction programs is required. Current certification in NAUI First Aid for Dive Professionals, NAUI Nitrox Diver, (or equivalent) and a minimum of 100 logged open water scuba dives with a minimum of 50 hours bottom time are also required. To enroll, find a NAUI Training Center or instructor near you by visiting the NAUI Dive Center and Professional Locator. You can also check for upcoming courses on our Calendar of Events page.
Upon completion of the NAUI Instructor Crossover Course (ICC), provided all prerequisites are met, graduates are qualified to apply for NAUI Instructor membership. Active-status NAUI Instructors may independently teach NAUI sanctioned courses and authorize NAUI certification for graduates.
