Scuba Instructor Crossover


As a certified Scuba Instructor you have already been assessed by a diving agency and passed the exams, congratulations.

Do you find the annual fees you pay to your diving agency extortionate?

Are you unhappy with the lack of assistance from your diving agency?

Have you struggled to find work with your chosen diving agency?

Fed up with defending the digital materials that dont work on a daily basis?

We have the solutions to all of those issues and many more.


It is common now for scuba instructors to hold certifications for several agencies, to have some flexibility in teaching. Most instructors become dual  instructors for the first year and then realise the huge benefits of being a SSI instructor over any other agency.

In the last years, the SSI training system has reached the highest level of modern diving education, with an easy to use online training system, available immediately in all important languages. You don’t have to stock books and certifications, you just use what you need and as a Dive center pay at the end of the month.

As you are already an Instructor you learn, the entire SSI program and the differences with other certifying agencies and especially the one you come from.

As there is no formal instructor evaluation at the end of the program the stress is reduced and you can have fun while you learn.
We will introduce you to new skills and knowledge that will increase your capabilities as a diving professional.


With SSI the support for Instructors is unique, you gain access to lots of possibilities and the best training and materials in the world. 

If you are already a Dive instructor in another organisation it is straight forward to get the SSI Qualification.

SSI is accepting instructors of all RSTC organisations or ISO certified organisation.

Unlike other diving agencies there is no huge fee to be evaluated again, so you start saving from day one!. 

You will reach exactly the equivalent level to what you have already, so you start in the same position you have reached in your former agency. Even your experience will be recognised.
