naui leadership cards
NAUI Leadership Cards

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.

Teach Once – Certify Twice

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.

something to keep in mind
Something To Keep In Mind…

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!!!
