AAUS E-Learning Platform
The AAUS Board of Directors is excited to announce we are offering the Scientific Diving Instructional Staff and Scientific Divers-in-Training at our Organizational Members access to the Scientific Diver Certification course on our new e-Learning platform. This Learning Management System was custom-built with the experience, leadership, and support from within our scientific diving community and is capable of delivering academic content that meets current AAUS standards for the training of Scientific Divers, tracks the administrative and performance requirements of Scientific Divers-in-Training, and creates a permanent record of the completed certification of Scientific Divers.
The recognition and continuing authorization of Scientific Divers has always rested with each organization's Diving Control Board. When Scientific Diving Instructors and Divers-in-Training use this system and complete all the requirements, it enables AAUS to recognize formal Scientific Diving training and certification and create a National Registry of Scientific Divers. We are already adding new courses as well as task and equipment-specific endorsements for Scientific Divers and will continue to develop this platform with input from our entire community.
If you already have credentials in the system, log in at elearning.aaus.org
. Please note that these will be different credentials than those for your membership in AAUS.
If you are an OM and you would like to to request access for your students, please contact the AAUS office.
If you represent an organization that applies the scientific diving exemption to any occupational diving activities and are interested in becoming members to enjoy this benefit, please use the following form to request guest access to a demo version of the Scientific Diver Certification course.
