About The Event

The Instructor Trainer designation is a formal NAUI leadership designation, not a certification. The NAUI Instructor Trainer designation (IT) provides recognition to NAUI Instructors who have completed a combination of training and evaluated experience specific to the preparing, training, evaluating and counseling of NAUI Instructor candidates.

Active-status NAUI Instructors designated as Instructor Trainer may direct the Staff Training Workshop (STW), Instructor Training Program (ITP), and staff an Instructor Training Course (ITC), Instructor Qualification Program (IQP), or Instructor Trainer Workshop (ITW) in any position other than Course Director when using NAUI support materials.

An active-status NAUI Instructor Trainer who completes all requirements as laid out by the NAUI Training Department can teach the NAUI First Aid – Powered by DAN provider courses and First Aid Instructor workshops.

Location: Roanoke Island Outfitters, 627 US Hwy 64, Manteo, NC 27954
