NAUI NREC Workshop For Recreational Divers

What will you learn?

Our NAUI NREC Workshop For Recreational Divers is a Primer program that acts as an awakening of sorts introducing the Recreational Diver to the most beneficial equipment configuration and foundational skills that we teach and believe that all Diver’s should.

The NAUI NREC Workshop is the perfect starting point for students to being their path towards more disciplined and polished diving skills and techniques offered as a crossover to our style of diving if coming from the more pedestrian Diver Courses offered by the majority of dive shops around the world.

NREC is a mini workshop/experience program that outlines the benefits of diving with a more streamlined, simple, safe and comfortable equipment configuration.

NAUI NREC is a hands on opportunity for recreational divers to rig their gear properly under our supervision to start utilizing the most modern methods of skill in this configuration.

We are currently offering NREC and NAUI NTEC (doubles) on a regular basis with the opportunity to add-on an open water diving component with your Instructor to prepare you for the next step, which is doubles and the NAUI Intro to Tech Course.

Diving is something that is always evolving, improving and changing through new technology, training and experiences.  The concepts we implement and the way we think of posture, trim and technique gets taken to a new level of excellence as the average recreational diver has typically not been taught anything about trim, posture, streamlining themselves in water, or simplifying the equipment configuration.

NREC introduces divers to streamlining gear for example how to clean up your existing equipment configuration, re-routing hoses that are too long or too short, as well as providing the diver with knowledge as to why this gear needs to be reconfigured or streamlined.

With NREC, we utilize the use of a longer primary regulator hose, which is given in an out of air emergency to the out of air diver, while retaining the alternate air source quickly and easily because its located on a necklace around your neck.  Through additional streamlining we start removing all the “danglies” off the divers equipment, thus creating a sleeker, more efficient diver profile.

Our Style of Diving

The “Traditional” equipment configuration that is commonly used in diving has become dated and obsolete and needs revision, this is where the NAUI Recreational Equipment Configuration has truly become “Today’s Equipment Configuration” for divers of all skill level from Open Water to Technical, Extreme Exposure Trimix, DPV, and Cave Diver.  It really is a multi-purpose, uniformed way to dive.

Who should take this course?

NAUI NTEC (NAUI TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT CONFIGURATION) is A Modern Equipment Configuration and Introductory Course for the diver who wants the benefit of utilizing today’s most modern equipment configuration in a single tank configuration or a double tank system with an eye on the NAUI Intro to Technical Diving Course as their next step in the learning progression.

We offer a great mentorship that allows you to gain the skills and experience prior to enrolling in the NAUI Intro to Tech Course, which is one of the most challenging and rewarding classes a diver will take.

Everyone should take this mini primer workshop.
