SSI has been a leader in professional diver education since 1970. Come be a part of the SSI family!


The first step in becoming an SSI Dive Professional is to become a Dive Guide. The mission of the SSI Dive Guide is to provide divers with wonderful dives while improving their own knowledge and skills through experience and dive planning and execution.


Those who also complete the Science of Diving theory specialty as a dive guide have earned the title of SSI Divemaster.


The next step is the SSI Assistant Instructor. The Assistant Instructor is the first step in diver education to train new divers.


The next step on the professional career ladder could be the Training Specialist, who is allowed to teach some specialty courses independently or the step to the Instructor as an Open Water Instructor.


At the lake, we are currently training students up to the level of Dive Master. If you have some time to spare, you can also complete your Dive Master training with us in exchange for a cooperation. Just contact us, we are looking forward to hearing from you!


If you are interested in the SSI Assistant Instructor or further courses, we are happy to refer you to our favorite partner school in Croatia!
