SSI Instructor Crossover

SSI Instructor Crossover – Why should I crossover to be an SSI instructor?

SSI is the fastest growing Scuba Diving agency in the world and there are now more than 25 SSI dive schools here on the small island of Koh Tao. As well as Koh Tao SSI are expanding rapidly all over South East Asia and the rest of the world. Being ‘dual certified’ by carrying out your SSI Instructor Crossover will allow you to work at a much larger range of dive schools and expand your career options.

SSI teaching philosophy

SSI programs provide an underwater experience that brings people together as they learn the value of communication and cooperation, both above and below the surface. The SSI range of programs is one of the most effectively designed and thoroughly tested diver education systems in the world. There are four distinct components to becoming a diver — proper knowledge, skills, equipment and experience. We call this the SSI Diver Diamond.

SSI Instructor Crossover Koh Tao Schedule

When you sign up you will be given the online course materials and some home study is then needed before you start the course. When you are ready to go the course will then take 2-3days. You will learn everything there is to know about the SSI teaching system both in the classroom and the water and complete some theory and skills demonstration evaluations.

Upon completion of the course you will be an ‘SSI Open Water Instructor’ and able to teach Open Water, Advanced Adventurer, Diver Stress & Rescue & Try Scuba Diving programs. ALL specialties that you are already certified to teach with your agency will also cross over with you; so for example if you are already certified to teach Deep Diving with PADI, when you crossover to SSI you will keep this specialty.
