At Oceano Dive Centre, the NAUI Instructor SCUBA Crossover course consists of two main phases:

  • Theory. The academic training will help you understand the skills involved in becoming a dive instructor, first at home doing an eLearning then a review in our classroom with your instructor Trainer.  
  • Practical teaching. Learning the NAUI way to teach and be able to conduct NAUI courses in the classroom and in the water.

The NAUI Instructor Crossover Course (ICC) is designed to train and qualify applicants in good standing with non-NAUI recreational SCUBA training organisations 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. The ICC may be presented in two phases. If done so, Phase One is called an Instructor Crossover Program (ICP) and contains all preparatory training except for the final evaluations. During an ICP, candidate practice performances must be evaluated by at least two qualified evaluators The ICP can be conducted in many formats, ranging in length from a day to an internship over an extended period. The second or final phase of an ICC so organised is called the Instructor Qualification Program (IQP), during which a Course Director must be in residence and all final evaluations will be made. An active-status NAUI Instructor who completes all requirements as laid out by the NAUI Training Department, can teach the NAUI First Aid provider courses.
