We are occasionally asked to conduct PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) certification, and our PADI instructors can meet these desires. However, after years of comparing different programs, we believe that NAUI offers both more flexibility in training and a more comprehensive curriculum. What this means to the student is that your NAUI instructor has the flexibility to adjust his approach to your specific needs. This "student-centered" concept permits us to put the student's unique requirements ahead of a rigid pre-planned format of instruction. If you need more time to grasp a particular skill, your instructor can either decide to teach that skill a bit differently, or he can change the schedule so you can move ahead with other skills and return to the more challenging skill later.

This flexibility does not mean that the course is unstructured or "ad hoc." Quite the contrary, our instructors are trained to meet comprehensive standards, both for ethics and for instruction. These standards will always guide your instruction program. See the description of NAUI Standards.

NAUI prides itself in the quality of its training programs and materials - and Chesapeake Underwater Sports carries on this tradition. One of the most telling aspects of NAUI Instructor Training and Certification is the question that every Course Director/Instructor Training asks himself/herself before granting an instructor certification. That question is, "Would I trust this individual with the responsibility of teaching my loved ones how to dive."

Chesapeake Underwater Sports, and its instructors, have trained several thousand unique individuals to dive. You will have the benefit of extensive professional instructional experience starting with your first class and continuing on until you reach your goals. More than anything we want your program to be safe, fun and complete.
