What is a SSI Divemaster?

The SSI Divemaster course is the first level of professional dive training where you’ll perfect your diving techniques with a SSI Instructor.

We are talking about mastering buoyancy , improving rescue techniques, enhancing management and supervision skills… Skills that will allow you to guide other divers and assist them in their training, becoming a model for divers all over the world.

The SSI Divemaster course is internationally recognized and allows you to work both in a remote part of the world and close to home.

Before doing the SSI Divemaster in Tenerife…

Before embarking on this adventure, stop for a second and ask yourself a few questions: Do you like customer service and dealing with tourists? Do you like to work? Are you patient?

Working in the world of diving is a very rewarding way of earning a living but you should never forget that it is a job. Apart from diving you will become a teacher and a role model. You will need to have great customer service skills and be willing to do all the associated jobs within a dive centre.

The first step towards the professional world of diving, and for me personally the most important, is the SSI Divemaster course. In this course you will learn the basics of working in a dive center and prepare for the next course, The Assistant instructor SSI and Open Water instructor.
