NAUI Argentina Launches NAUI Recreational Equipment Configuration (NREC)

NAUI Recreational Equipment Configuration (NREC) Diver is an Instructor Specified Specialty (ISS) course.  This ISS opens the door to a holistic configuration concept. It is the single tank form of the well-known NAUI Technical Equipment Configuration (NTEC) course that in 1997 the NAUI Technical Diving Division (NAUITEC) created in order to standardize configurations and protocols to increase safety and efficiency in technical diving.


NREC is an ISS that can be introduced in conjunction with or immediately after the Open Water Scuba Diver course and culminates in a recognition certification.


NAUI has the prestige of academic freedom and this has meant that active NAUI professionals have been able to choose how and which configurations to introduce and teach recreational diving students.



As of today, NREC is registered as an ISS and all divers in the world will have access to receive this training with an active NAUI Instructor authorized to teach this ISS.


NREC includes:
