    Is it possible to get replacement NAUI textbooks, etc. if misplaced?
    I've checked their site, but no info on that.

    Check EBay, or tell us what manual you want and one of us might have it.

    Thanks for the reply and suggestion.
    I take it from your reply new copies from NAUI are not possible then.

    I would imagine that they are, but you'll have to go through one of their retailers or instructors to get one. Their business is publishing after all.

    Just a clarification, NAUI’s business is not publishing, as a member association its primary interest is Dive instruction. All training materials are available through a NAUI Dive center or an independent instructor. I have extra copies of some student texts or I can provide you with a complete set of materials for the course you are interested in. Happy to help if you let me know by private message.

    Who prints their text books? FWIW, a past CEO for NAUI is the one who told me that. He was pretty proud of the fact and he wasn't a diver.

    NAUI has a subsidiary, NAUI Services Group, that does all their publishing.

    I know that their web site is in a transitional state right now and I don't see books listed without logging in. Not sure if that means they want you to buy from a NAUI shop or instructor or if it means they just haven't gotten that part of the web site built yet.

    A quick google of "buy naui books" will give you plenty of sources for it though. :D

    You can buy NAUI textbooks or any of their material available to their students through a NAUI Dive center or NAUI Instructor no problem.

    And there is a reason he is a former CEO of NAUI

    He retired. Do you know why he was hired? He's a publisher.
