Being a part of the SSI family as a Professional gives you unparalleled access to responsive, world-class customer service and a seemingly endless list of programs and benefits. SSI is dedicated to supporting you, so you can create the career of your dreams. If you currently hold a rating from another recognized agency and see the limitless possibilities SSI offers, we have a crossover program for you. We recognise that as a qualified dive professional, you already know how to supervise and train divers. The crossover is designed to simply familiarize you with the SSI Total Teaching System and the difference in our in-water training skills. It's that simple. The ratings you currently hold with your recognized agency will be crossed over with SSI ratings if there is an equivalent course in SSI. After completion, you can continue your career with SSI without limits! This course also acts as an update for SSI Professionals who have been in inactive status for at least 2 years.
