Become a Scuba Instructor and Live Your Passion
Start today - You need to be a Divemaster or equivalent to join SSI´s 3-Step Instructor Training Approach. The training process starts with joining the Assistant Instructor / Instructor Training Course combination accompanied with Digital Learning. After successful completion of the Instructor Training Course (ITC) you will enroll in an Instructor Evaluation (IE) to qualify as an SSI Open Water Instructor. This 10 day training program entitles you to teach various key SSI programs independently like Scuba Diver, Open Water Diver, Enriched Air Nitrox, Diver Stress & Rescue and Dive Guide. For those who want to take more time to learn and to gain valuable teaching experience between the training programs the 3 parts can also be taken as single steps - Assistant Instructor, Instructor Training Course (ITC) and Instructor Evaluation (IE) one after the other at own pace and with a flexible schedule.
Specialty Instructor / Advanced Open Water Diver Instructor
As an Open Water Instructor you can progress to become a Specialty Instructor and start teaching the SSI specialties. Once you have taught enough specialties you will automatically qualify to be an Advanced Open Water Diver Instructor. After this you can become a Divemaster Instructor and help Divemaster trainees achieve their Divemaster status. With this bundle you will receive 5 Specialty Instructor Courses.
Assistant Instructor Trainer and Instructor Trainer
The final step is to become an Instructor Trainer, then you can teach the Instructor Training Courses and perform Instructor Evaluations to qualify brand new Open Water Instructors.
Before you can do that though, you must work as an Assistant Instructor Trainer and help the Instructor Trainers on the courses, while learning from them and gaining experience.
Being an Instructor Trainer is a huge responsibility, it would be your job to decide if someone is ready and trustworthy enough to become an instructor!
There are prerequisites to all these programs, so it is a good idea to check that you have all you need before signing up. For example, check the minimum number of logged dives or minimum swimming ability. You can find these prerequisites on SSI website before you sign up for a program. You will also need to sign a medical questionnaire to ensure you are fit to dive.
