Diver training organization generally refers to a diving school for training recreational, technical, commercial, military and other professional divers.

The term may also be used to refer to diver certification organizations and agencies. These organizations do not generally train divers directly, though they set the standards, and may train and assess diving instructors, and affiliate diving schools.

Diver registration authorities generally do not train divers, but register commercial divers trained and assessed against their standards.

Military divers are generally trained, assessed, certified and registered by the branch of the armed force of which they are members.
