So you have decided to take your Dive Pro Training to the next level and get your Instructor "Ticket".
At Endless Oceans Gozo we offer the SSI Instructor Training Course twice a year and are happy to accept divers from all agencies, who have a ISO 24801-3 "Dive Leader" level qualification, to join our SSI ITCs.
Should you choose to take the next step with Endless Oceans we endeavor to ensure you are ready for your move into the world of instructing by including 5 of the most sought after Specialties to help you stand out and progress though the instructor levels from day one. In fact, with the exception of the real world teaching experience, after your 15 day stay with us you will have all the tools you need to reach the level of SSI Divemaster Instructor.
During this intensive 10 day course you will learn the SSI Total Teaching System and philosophy under the guidance of our in house Instructor Trainer. By the end of the 10 day ITC you will have learned the skills, knowledge, and teaching tools required to sit your 2 day SSI Instructor Evaluation (IE) and then go on to work as an SSI Instructor anywhere in the world.
Upon successful completion of your IE our Trainer will continue to work with you for a further 2 days to gain 5 further Specialty Instructor ratings. These additional Specialty Instructor ratings will further help you to excel as a diving instructor and make the most of your new career in the diving industry.
