About FAUI

Internationally Recognised Diver Qualifications

Since the early 1960’s our name has changed a number of times. We started as NQS (National Qualification System) and changed to FAUI (Federation of Australian Underwater Instructors) in the 1970’s, eventually merging with NASDS – USA (National Association of Scuba Diving Schools) becoming NASDS Australasia Inc in the 1980’s.

Since then, for a number of reasons, NASDS Australasia Inc faded from view to the disappointment of many people involved in this quality diver training system.

Scuba Com Pty Ltd is now funding the regeneration of FAUI with a slight name change to “Formation of Australian Underwater Instructors”.
