Why NDL?

Advantages of NDL for students

International training standards
World experience at your service.
The National Dive League is a full member of the European Underwater Federation (EUF), and its programs comply with international standards ISO and EN.

Interesting about what really matters.
All textbooks are written in a professional literary language, which makes the reading not only useful, but also fascinating.

The textbooks do not contain any unnecessary information, so as not to waste your time and focus your attention on the really important things.

Not only the theoretical part of the training is described in detail, but also its practical part. Each exercise is described gradually, which makes their mastering in the future as simple as it is possible.
NDL textbooks
Completely Unique.

Textbooks and training programs are themselves a unique advantage of NDL.

This is a collective work of methodists and experienced scuba diving practitioners.

Each course, each training program has a high semantic value and significance for improving safety during scuba diving.

Not to mention that some of the training materials simply have no analogues in the world: the world's first amateur ice diving textbook, the world's first children's diving textbook, and many others.
Features of the basic course "Diver"
Serious training for real diving.
Features of the course
"Professional Buoyancy Diver"
Top of Art.
Key course
Buoyancy expert
Necessary condition.
The buoyancy course is a special pride of the NDL.
In our opinion, perfect buoyancy is something that any diver should master.
Perfect buoyancy allows you to significantly improve the safety and comfort of diving, reduce air consumption, improve the accuracy of underwater navigation, and much more.

That is why the National Dive League has developed a special buoyancy course, which is included in the set of compulsory courses if an amateur diver wants to become a professional.
The NDL diver does not make mistakes. Never.
In the theoretical part of the buoyancy course, the instructor will talk with you about the physical aspects of buoyancy control, the rules for selecting and distributing weights, and will analyze the most common mistakes made while diving.

Understanding these aspects will help you to avoid such mistakes. You will only have to work out the technique of buoyancy control during practical classes.
Mastery for 5 lessons.
You will work out the knowledge gained in the class with a help of the instructor in the water for five practical sessions. Gradually, you will achieve perfection in controlling your own buoyancy, stroke technique, and position of your body under water.
All this will allow you to master buoyancy at the level of the NDL professional.

You can often see a similar situation at the resorts, when a beginner who has only completed the NDL basic course and the NDL buoyancy course, controls his buoyancy better than a diver who has already done dozens, maybe hundreds of dives.

Quantity does not always mean quality. Quality is achieved at the NDL buoyancy course.
Show them all how it should be done.
After completing the NDL Professional Buoyancy Diver course, you will already be masterful in buoyancy. However only sky is the limit. If you want to learn a unique swimming technique. If you want to have a number of techniques that other professionals will envy, then the NDL Advanced Professional Buoyancy Diver course is for you.
Such skills as helicopter turn, reverse motion, performing a number of skills in neutral buoyancy in hovering and others are practiced during the course.

It is very difficult, but it is the highest level. A strong desire will lead you to success.
Continuation of training
No limit to perfection.
Advanced Universal Diver
Three in one.
We also have our own view on advanced level training. The NDL Advanced Universal Diver course is not a superficial study of a little bit of everything, when the student has not really learned anything at all, but a detailed study of 3 underwater disciplines: underwater navigation, deep diving and night dives*.

After completing this course, you will become an expert in these areas and will be able to plan your deep or night dives confidently, easily navigating underwater.

*in agreement with the NDL Headquarter, the instructor is able to replace the study of the discipline "night diving" if it is impossible to perform it for any good reason with another discipline approved by the office of the NDL.
Rescue and First Aid courses
Your buddy is under your protection.
The course NDL Medic First Aid was created in accordance with the latest recommendations of the European Resuscitation Council and is popular not only with divers, but also with people who are not engaged in diving.

The course NDL Rescue Diver is focused mainly on anticipating and preventing an emergency. However, even if such a situation occurs, after passing this course you will clearly understand how to behave in this case.

One step away from a professional.
The course NDL Diveleader is a unique NDL course. Its task, as well as one of the tasks of the NDL Divemaster course, is to prepare the dive organizer. However, while the NDL Divemaster course is a large course where a real diving professional is trained, where the physics and physiology of diving, the psychology of working with different people, human anatomy and much more are also analyzed in detail in addition to the organizational aspects, the NDL Diveleader course provides only the basics of organizing a dive with a group of divers.

Passing the basic course NDL Diver already implies that you can dive with a partner without a professional accompanying . However, it is obvious that a beginner is not able to organize a dive in a high-quality and absolutely safe way due to a lack of experience and knowledge. Admission to the NDL Diveleader course assumes that the driver already has sufficient experience of diving, and now the diver will receive knowledge and will consolidate them in practical way under the guidance of an NDL instructor.
Diving diversity.
The National Dive League has developed many special courses. Some of them have no analogues in the world.
Ice Diver
Winter is coming...

The textbook about ice diving deserves individual attention. This is the world's first textbook about amateur ice diving. While developing it, we took into account the recommendations of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia for working on ice.

Your safety is our job.
Teaching children requires a special approach. What is easy to explain to adults is not always easy to explain to children. Therefore, the National Dive League has developed a separate diving textbook specifically for teaching children. This is the world's only diving textbook for children.
See what is usually hidden from us in the depths of the sea. Achieve the weightlessness under water. The goal of the National Dive League is to make scuba diving accessible to absolutely everyone. For this reason, we have created special programs for people with special needs. These programs are unique and different from their analogues because they are not just general recommendations, but a clearly defined procedure for performing each exercise, taking into account individual characteristics of a person. And all this is supported by scientific medical justification made by specialists of the Russian Federal Scientific Center of Rehabilitation of the Disabled named after G.A. Albrecht.
NDL technical diving programs are created in accordance with the latest world developments. Like any other NDL training materials, the technical diving textbook is a symbiosis of the work of methodologists and experienced practitioners of deep diving: carefully detailed theoretical foundations of decompression dives, a detailed plan of practical classes, safety as the basis of organization and planning
Comprehensive quality control of training.
The standards for each course of study are posted on the National Dive League website and freely accessible. The training materials describe the theoretical and practical classes in detail. You are always able to ask our employees any question by email.
All this means that you will always clearly understand the minimum amount of information that your NDL instructor should transmit to you. Along with other monitoring methods, this control not only by the organization, but also by each student creates a reliable system for monitoring the quality of education.

Your underwater document.
At the end of training, you will receive a diver's certificate in both plastic and electronic form. You do not need to pay for an electronic or plastic certificate separately: they come in a set in NDL.

As soon as your instructor clicks the "register a student" button, you will instantly receive an electronic certificate and literally will be able to plunge into adventures.
All certificates will find their owners.

You will get an electronic certificate immediately by installing a free mobile app. You will receive a plastic certificate by mail.

Our employees process numerous applications for certification as quickly as possible.
Our couriers visit the post offices on a weekly basis and are already welcome there.

The average delivery time of your certificate is 3 weeks.

In addition, all emails have a departure number and can be tracked on the state post office website. This guarantees that you will get your underwater document.

Lightning-fast issuance of document.
The National Dive League has a large network of offices and representatives in Vietnam, Thailand, South Korea, Brazil, Malaysia, Egypt and many other countries around the world.

This means that you can get your diver's certificate immediately at your local representative office after you have been trained by an NDL instructor, for example in Phuket or Sharm El-Sheikh, without waiting for the certificate to be delivered by mail.
Warranty of genuineness.
Even in the rare case when you arrive at the resort and forget your plastic diver certificate at home, and you do not have the opportunity to demonstrate its electronic version, you can confirm your diver status directly on the NDL website.

Here you can also check the training status of your instructor: whether he has an active professional status and whether this person is an instructor.
Confirm the diver status >

The possibility of such verification excludes any attempts by impostors to unfairly assign themselves the high title of NDL instructors.

More than just an app.
The NDL mobile app is not just a repository of your electronic certificates, but also your electronic logbook, no-decompression dive planner, verification of any NDL diver status, and a convenient working tool for the instructor.
And all this is absolutely free.
NDL Instructor.
A person who is always ahead.
Leader. Organizer. Professional.
The NDL instructor course is a higher education in diving. Only the best scuba divers pass it. In addition to bringing scuba diving skills to perfection, working out methods of teaching students under water, detailed analysis of the diving theory, management and marketing in the diving business, a significant part of the instructor's course is devoted to didactics, pedagogical skills and oratory.
The ability to make excellent presentations distinguishes the NDL instructor. Your instructor will not only voice the theses that are described in the textbooks, but also explain them in detail, give his or her personal experience. It will not only make the lecture more interesting, but also allow you to better understand the material, comprehend it and understand why the instructor recommends doing this, and not otherwise.
Before entering the course of a Divemaster or an Instructor, the candidate must pass the buoyancy course. This means that your instructor or dive-guide will stay in the water perfectly, and he or she will be able to fully devote all the time to organizing your safety during dives and training, without constantly being distracted by pressing buttons of inflator.
Choose your own way to perfection.
If a building becomes architecture, then it is art
The flexible structure of NDL courses allows you to choose the direction for improving your skills after completing the basic course. The range of courses includes some courses that do not require so-called "open water" and can be taken in the pool. A special ice diving course allows you to dive even in the frosty winter. This way you turn diving from an exclusively summer or resort type of recreation into an all-year hobby that you are able to do in any season.
