The Association nationale des moniteurs de plongée (English: National Association of Diving Instructors) ( ANMP ) is a French professional body recognized by the Ministry of Sports. It is empowered to grant certification to recreational divers in France.

ANMP is a founding member of CEDIP (European Committee of Professional Diving Instructors) and a union member of the National Union of Autonomous Unions (UNSA).

ANMP instructors are state certified instructors.


Various types of training are offered by ANMP,[1] through three separate courses:

ANMP also offers seven specialties leading to certification: Snorkeling, underwater life (biology), Night diving, Underwater Photo-Video, wreck or cave penetration, dry suit, and ice diving.[4]

Since the reform of the Code of Sport in 2010, along with certification levels 1 to 4, ANMP offers 8 qualifications for diving skills for depths up to 12, 20, 40 and 60 meters.[4]

These qualifications allow divers access to greater depths accompanied by an instructor if they are not interested in qualifying for autonomous diving to these depths, or to progress more rapidly to autonomous diving without necessarily being trained and experienced to the deepest dives.

"Guide to the Sea"

The title of "Guide to the Sea", created by Daniel Mercier, founder president of the ANMP, recognizes knowledge and experience of members with particular reference to.
