NAUI Scuba Instructor

Have a passion for the ocean and want to spread that to others? Become a NAUI dive instructor. NAUI has incredibly high standards that make it one of, if not the best dive training providers in the world. Unlike other organisations, when you make the jump from divemaster to an instructor with NAUI you are then able to teach courses all the way up to Divemaster without doing further courses. From there you can teach specialities you have yourself without doing a speciality instructor course, and eventually, make your own specialised courses. The possibilities for a NUI instructor are almost limitless.

At Oceano Dive Centre, the NAUI Instructor Trainer workshop consists of two main phases:

  • Theory. The workshop training will help you understand the skills involved in becoming an instructor Trainer, first at home doing an eLearning then a review in our classroom with your Course Director.  
  • Practical. Learning all the practical skills required to teach someone the NAUI way of teaching and work as an Instructor in the classroom and in the water.

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 counselling 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 provider courses and First Aid Instructor workshops.
