The SSI Instructor crossover program is conducted over 2 days with one of our Instructor Trainers, with a series of in-water and classroom presentations as well as a watermanship test. We have no student minimum and have small class sizes.

The intent of the SSI Instructor Crossover program is to provide an orientation to SSI philosophies and procedures to dive instructors from other recognized scuba training agencies. It provides the knowledge and skills needed to conduct SSI programs equivalent to their existing qualifications in a safe and enjoyable manner. Upon completion you will be certified as an SSI Open Water Instructor corresponding to your previous certification and experience with your other agency.

Since you already have done your instructor training with another agency, you already know how to teach divers. Therefore, our main goal during the course will be to make you knowledgeable and comfortable with SSI Programs, products and services, so that you may confidently teach SSI courses.
