By combining the Dive Guide program with SSI’s Science of Diving Specialty, you can become an SSI Divemaster, the next milestone in the career pathway.
The next step would be advancing on to become an SSI Dive Control Specialist, where you will learn how to be an assistant instructor, conducting both pool/confined and classroom sessions. The most popular way to complete this course is by combining it with the SSI Instructor Training Course, to become an Open Water instructor. This is a 14-day intensive course where you will learn how to present in the classroom, pool/confined water and the open water.
If you are already a dive professional with another training agency, we also offer 2-3 day SSI Professional Crossover courses and practical internships, with work placement options.
