There is a demand for people who have a passion for diving and want to share that passion with others.
The SSI Dive Guide program is the first step to get involved in the dive professional program without taking on the responsibility or commitment of an SSI Open Water Instructor. The Dive Guide program is the entry level to SSI’s Leadership Programs. As a rule of thumb, in the Dive Guide role you are directly responsible for and work primarily with certified divers. As a Dive Guide, you will lead certified divers on underwater tours, work on dive boats and lead trips for a Dive Center. You will use group management, accident prevention and specialized diving skills, such as boat and navigation. The Dive Guide program trains you to be a well-prepared, versatile, and marketable diver. It is designed to create professional, active status SSI Dive Guides, and is the first step on the following path to becoming an SSI Dive Professional. This program should be a rewarding experience for divers who want to share their love of recreational scuba. Much like the Open Water Diver program, which introduces students to the world of diving, the Dive Guide program introduces divers to a leadership role, allowing you to earn the respect of others while diving at an entirely different level.
