CMAS Announces Plans for Latest Federation

CMAS AmericasThe Confereration Mondiale des Activities Subaquatiques (CMAS), also known as the World Underwater Federation, is pleased to announce the formation of its newest Federation — CMAS AMERICAS.

After forty-seven years of being only offered through other training agencies CMAS courses will now be offered in the United States directly through CMAS AMERICAS. CMAS AMERICAS will be servicing North America and the Caribbean.

CMAS was formed in 1958 under the direction of the late Captain Jacques Yves Cousteau and was the first truly international diver association. It has grown through the years and now has representation in over one hundred countries. CMAS is recognized worldwide as being one of the highest quality diver training programs in existence.

After years of being offered as an add-on to other training agency courses CMAS has realized the need to have independent representation in the US and Caribbean. CMAS AMERICAS’ goals are to provide high quality dive training programs, increase the presence of CMAS in the region and provide a closer link to the World Underwater Federation.
