Dive Professional Pathway

Physics, Physiology, Decompression Theory, Aquatic Environment and Diving Equipment.
This knowledge is the basis for a successful career as an SSI Dive Professional.
DIVE GUIDE (DG)
The SSI Dive Guide program is a simple way for divers who want to be more involved but aren’t ready to take on the responsibility or the commitment of becoming an SSI Instructor. The Dive Guide program is the starting point for the Dive Professional adventure.
As soon as you have completed Dive Guide, and the Science of Diving programs, you will be awarded with the SSI Divemaster rating. You are then on your way to becoming an SSI Dive Control Specialist.
DIVE MASTER (DM)
Dive Guide plus the Science of Diving program equals Divemaster. Divemasters can assist SSI Instructors with pool/confined water and open water training under the direct supervision of an SSI Instructor. This brings valued experience for all future diving carriers!

Enroll in a Dive Control Specialist program or enter the program as a Divemaster from any approved agency. After you are certified you can teach Scuba Skills Update, Snorkeling and Try Scuba (pool only) and you can even upgrade Training Specialist – a further step at your career ladder.
TRAINING SPECIALIST (TS)
A Dive Control Specialist can become a Training Specialist and teach certain SSI specialties by simply purchasing the training materials and co-teaching that Specialty with an SSI Instructor.
