The ACUC Pro-Check is intended for anyone to verify the teaching status of any ACUC professional (Divemaster or higher level). The ACUC Pro-check will show you, if the professional is active with ACUC, the first and last name of the ACUC professional, their highest ACUC main professional qualification, and until when their teaching status is active with ACUC.

Instructors are generally authorized to teach ACUC courses, guide divers, and assist in ACUC courses, as indicated by their level of qualification (you can view ACUC standards here). Divemasters are authorized to guide divers and assist in ACUC courses and teach some “dry” courses (where there is no aquatic training, such as emergency oxygenation, etc…).
