NAUI Leadership Courses
NAUI Progression of Leadership Training (Leadership and Instructor Levels)
The leadership and instructor levels of certification are:
- NAUI FIT
- Skin Diving Instructor
- Assistant Instructor
The Skin Diving Instructor certification (formerly Skin Diving Leader) has long been unique to NAUI. It qualifies individuals to train and certify skin divers and conduct snorkeling experience programs.
Both the Assistant Instructor and Divemaster ratings allow individuals to attend an Instructor Training Course (ITC) to be trained and qualified as NAUI Instructors. Completion of a NAUI Familiarization-Instruction-Testing (FIT) Program is required prior to enrollment in the NAUI Assistant Instructor course, NAUI Divemaster course, or NAUI Instructor Crossover Course (ICC).
The NAUI Familiarization-Instruction-Testing (FIT) program is a prerequisite for NAUI Assistant Instructor Course, NAUI Divemaster Course or a NAUI Instructor Crossover Course (ICC).
