NAUI - SSI Passport is more like a PADI DSD (often called a resort course). The idea is if someone does one and often enough they can skip the brief class and get in the water with an instructor no deeper than 40fsw. They don't get a c card and aren't certified.
The Padi Scuba Diver is a certification.
