Training Assistant

If you have the desire to help train other divers, the NAUI Training Assistant specialty course might be the perfect fit for you. This course will teach you the skills and knowledge you need to be an effective training assistant during NAUI diver training courses, under the supervision of an active-status NAUI Instructor.

As a certified NAUI Training Assistant, you will be qualified to perform a variety of tasks, including temporarily directly supervising students while an instructor conducts skills with other students, escorting students on the surface or on underwater tours, and assisting an active-status NAUI Instructor with other tasks. You will also learn more about underwater navigation, communications, how to escort and assist divers during an open water training dive, and how to assist with problem management during diver training evolutions.

Get Started

Minimum age for these courses is 18 years plus certification as a NAUI Advanced Scuba Diver or equivalent, NAUI Rescue Scuba Diver or equivalent and current certification in first aid and CPR. Contact us for additional details regarding prerequisites and requirements for this rewarding program.
