Are you already SSI Dive Guide? then this is the first possible step!
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 are already an SSI Dive Guide you only need to get your science or diving specialty license and comply with all other normal conditions that apply to an SSI pro status! (check the manual!)
The Divemaster qualification is intended for candidates who have learned the knowledge and skills to perform the duties of a qualified assistant. These tasks include assisting SSI Instructors with entry level diving training and further training.
