How to be certified with a SSI instructor specialty?

There are three ways to become certified to teach SSI Specialty programs:

1- Specialty Instructor Seminar: with an IE.

2- Co-teaching the specialty with an instructor who already has the instructor level, and then get the shop monitor to sign the papers and take them to SSI – then IE is not needed.

      • Co-teach at least one complete specialty program.

      • Have at least ten (10) logged dives in the applicable specialty.

      • Have the Monitor of the affiliated SSI Dive Center/Resort sign off the Universal Application form.

3- Verification/Application (not available for Training Specialists*)

        • Have at least 20 logged dives in the applicable Specialty, or, for non-diving specialties, provide proof of experience (example: manufacturer’s technician certificate for Equipment Techniques).

        • Complete the applicable student materials, including review questions and final exam, or provide proof of an equivalent certification.

        • Have the Monitor of the affiliated SSI Dive Center/Resort sign off the Universal Application Form.
