Information for the SSI Divemaster certification:
If you have already been certified as an SSI Dive Guide, you will automatically become an SSI divemaster after obtaining the science or diving specialty! (* Provided you continue to meet all conditions for the SSI divemaster certificate)
Dive Guide plus the Science of Diving Specialty equals Divemaster. SSI Divemasters may take care of all activities for which a Dive Guide is also competent. In addition, they can act as a qualified assistant.
If you want to do a cross-over to SSI divemaster from another organization (divemaster) we advise you to follow this specialty, it prepares you, in addition to your cross-over package, for the cross-over exam SSI divemaster!
