IANTD’s mission is to explore the opportunities and challenges of Recreational Diving, which includes all forms of Sport Diving, Nitrox, Advanced and Technical diving, in order to foster openness and individual responsibility, and to provide a standard of care for instruction in the diving community.
IANTD and its members strive to be honest, ethical and fair in all our venues.
We also believe that there are universal principles that are more absolute. We try to live by them.
IANTD believes it is better to be cautious and demanding in training than to have even one accident.
IANTD is dedicated to producing knowledgeable and skillful divers. Both are key for developing competent, confident and relaxed divers, who can fully enjoy the exhilarating experiences of sport and technical diving.
