NAUI and LACO Forms
By Jay Canfield
UICC # 5410
This presentation will show you how to navigate the forms and requirements necessary for your individual membership with NAUI and LA County.
It will also outline what is involved to register the students you end up teaching with both organizations.
Professional SCUBA Certification from any Agency (NAUI, LACO, PADI, SSI, etc.) have expirations.
This includes Instructor, Assistant Instructor, DiveMaster, etc.
Typically they have an annual renewal period, annual fee and other additional requirements.
Most Agencies use a calendar year renewal system and offer no proration.
NAUI and LA County Leadership level certifications expire on December 31st of each calendar year.
Leadership Level Certifications can be renewed as Active or Inactive/Sustaining.
If you have a break in active status, you may be required to provide medical clearance and take and pass a written recertification exam.
UICC Graduates get their first year dues complimentary from the Department.
Unlike all NAUI recreational courses in which the Instructor of Record issues certification cards to each of their students, Leadership Levels are very different.
NAUI HQ is actually responsible for issuing Leadership cards (AI, DM, SDI, and Instructor).
You as the successful graduate of a leadership course are responsible for establishing your personal relationship with NAUI as a member.
You can be set up on Automatic Renewal by credit card each November providing annual renewal dues do not increase more than 6% each year.
Proof of Liability Insurance still required.
Call NAUI HQ at (813) 628-6284 to verify receipt of fax
NAUI will more than likely be your primary certification agency since it is a nationally recognized organization.
Why not issue a County certification as well? Show your pride in the history of LA County and issue your students an optional LA County Certification.
The programs are close enough in the standards that you can do that. You can sell the LA County Certification as a value add for $25.00 per card.
LA County Active Recertification now requires that you must teach or assist with one (1) LACO SCUBA course each year in order to remain an active teaching Instructor with the Underwater Unit.
Another option for active recertification is that you staff or assist one (1) complete ADP or UICC Course.
Bottom line? Issue County Cards!!!
