Instructor Training

NAUI Instructors are the most qualified and skilled diving professionals in the world! As the world's only democratically governed, membership based diver training agency, it is a privilege to call oneself a NAUI Instructor. NAUI Instructors train new divers and offer continuing education opportunities to certified divers worldwide. Whether your goal is a career or avocation, diving instruction as a NAUI Instructor can be one of the most rewarding and satisfying activities in a lifetime of diving.

The NAUI Instructor Training Course (ITC) is designed to train and qualify NAUI Instructor member applicants. During the course, candidate instructors learn effective methods to teach skin and scuba diving in compliance with NAUI Diving Course Standards.

The course prepares and evaluates candidates who seek certification as NAUI Instructors and assures that prospective members have the knowledge, skills, fitness and proper attitude to be called a NAUI Instructor.

Prerequisites: Candidates for a NAUI ITC should have considerable experience as a diver. At minimum 50 open water dives are required, plus completion of either a NAUI Prep course or other leadership program prior to registration for a NAUI ITC. Candidates can best determine their readiness for a NAUI ITC by an interview with a NAUI Course Director or NAUI Instructor Trainer. The staff at Discover Diving includes both. Contact the shop during regular business hours to discuss your qualifications.
