Actually, there is a third option as well. You could talk to someone like NAUI and get a specialized NAVED sponsored course made up. Instructors would still be required to become certified by the agency, but this could either be an additional course or a different focus on the basic course.Creed wrote:If you are going that far, you need to be able to certify instructors, and formalize a course. And if you do that, you might as well throw in basic training, since you will have to reteach a majority of that to new divers who want to get NAVED certified.
So, I say, either don't do a certification at all, and just remain a socializing group, or bite the bullet and go all the way to becoming a certification agency. Anyone doing any sort of training, whether strictly in vintage equipment or whatever, will need professional liability insurance. The only question is what insurance the organization will need.
......takes your house, everything you own and everything you make for the rest of your life.Example, a NXYZ certified diver learns vintage diving from some future NAVRD instructor and then drowns or has a hearta attack. The lieyer first tries to sue NAVED but NAVED only has ten bucks, you, the future instructor ain't exactly rich so the greedy lieyer
I can see the court case now:They are already scuba certified and so are you. Your simply introducing them to another aspect of the sport.
