    What certificates to work in diving industry in the USA

    A freind has a long term plan (5-10 years) to move to Miami or Florida. He is asking what certificates are valid? I suppose they dont care much for CMAS over there.

    He is not a rebreather diver or a technical diver yet. But in due course would like to obtain certificates that would be "most valid".


    Thank you in advance,

    Teoman

    In South Florida, just to work in the dive industry at all, PADI is the largest. If the person wants to get into technical diving, IANTD and TDI probably have the biggest share. NAUI also has a presence. There is at least one SSI shop in the area.

    Northern Florida is different, because there are other agencies (in addition to the above) with a strong presence in Cave training, such as NSS and NACD.

    Don't hold your breath waiting to get an H1B visa as a dive instructor.
