CMAS - CONFEDERATION MONDIALE DES ACTIVITES SUBAQUATIQUES

 

INTRODUCTION

The system of CMAS International Diver Certificates exists to allow divers who have been trained in accordance with the standards of CMAS to have their qualification recognized in countries throughout the world which are part of the CMAS family of divers.

CMAS International Diver Certificates can be obtained in two ways:

1/- A diver who holds a diving qualification awarded by a National Federation which is a member of the CMAS Technical Committee, and whose qualifications have been recognized by the Technical Committee, can obtain the CMAS International Diver Certificate which is recognized as equivalent to the national certificate held. In some countries the CMAS International Certificate will be awarded in place of a national certificate.
2/- A diver who has been trained by a diving school or centre which is recognized directly by CMAS will be awarded the CMAS International Diver Certificate appropriate to the standard reached.

 

AIMS OF THE CMAS INTERNATIONAL - DIVER CERTIFICATES SYSTEM

It is intended that, no matter where in the world a diver receives training, he or she will be able to visit other areas and be accepted as a diver with competence and experience equal to that indicated by the qualification held.
The CMAS International Diver Certificates are evidence that the holder has received training up to the minimum level defined for each grade of certificate.
They should then be allowed to participate in diving activities to the extent that a holder of the equivalent national certificate would be.
It is not the aim of the system that the holder of a CMAS International Diver Certificate should be given the equivalent national certificate.
However, they should be accepted for training to the next higher level.
The principles governing the CMAS International Instructor Certificates are precisely the same.

 

DEFINITIONS OF DIVER AND INSTRUCTOR GRADES

The system consists of four levels of diver qualification and three levels of instructor qualification.
In all cases, increased competence and experience is indicated by an increasing number of stars in the description and the emblem.
