In an effort to include more veterans in its mission to preserve and restore, NAUI is teaming up with Force Blue to encourage U.S. military veterans, who would like to become “Force Blue Assistant Scientific Divers”, to undergo SCUBA certifications through a network of Force Blue “Outposts” across the country.
NAUI PARTNERS WITH FORCE BLUE
WHO IS FORCE BLUE?
Force Blue, a 501c3 nonprofit, made up entirely of military-training combat divers drawn exclusively from the Special Operations ranks, will utilize the Force Blue Outpost Program to give those veterans, who may not have been divers during their military careers, the change to deploy alongside Force Blue Scientific Divers on future marine conservation Missions.

BECOMING A FORCE BLUE ASSISTANT SCIENTIFIC DIVER
To become a Force Blue Assistant Scientific Diver, candidates must posses at least a Rescue Diver certification from an accredited dive training organization. For many though, this prerequisite training can be cost prohibitive. Now through the Force Blue Outpost Program, veterans can use their educational benefits to pay for any/all of their dive certifications – including their Force Blue Assistant Scientific Diver certification – at any approved NAUI VA Testing Center.
