Dedicated to improving communication between diving programs
In defining this association, it is of equal importance to let you know what we are not. We are not a regulatory group. We do not have certification requirements. We will not be producing a set of standards to be adhered to. There are organizations, such as the AAUS and ADCI that already do a fine job of this much needed type of structure for our industry.
To provide a professional forum for the creative exchange of ideas, information, support and solutions within the community of zoo and aquarium diving program administrators.
- To develop a network to facilitate regular and convenient communication between diving programs.
- To assist and encourage diving programs in maximizing their potential for public education, aquatic conservation efforts and preservation of the environment.
- To support and assist diving program administrators in meeting the common challenges of maximizing diver safety, effective use of human resources and professional development.
