If you are reading these lines it is because you are considering making a turn in your life and turning your passion for diving into your profession.
We understand you perfectly, we’ve been there too. And believe us, it’s the best decision you can make.
At Family Divers we have created a professional training program and one of its latest steps is the SSI dive instructor course with Family Divers in the Maldives!
We offer a more personalized training since we only work with small groups of candidates, no more than 4 or 5 per course, which allows the instructor to dedicate the time that each candidate deserves, making the teaching much more effective.
We trust in the training model and philosophy of SSI (Scuba Schools International), one of the leading certifying agencies with more than 50 years of experience and that, in many aspects, is the driving force behind the sector in terms of digital innovation, its approach to what it means to train and certify competent divers, and that constantly renews and updates itself, always trying to provide quality experiences to both divers and professionals.
And there is nothing to object to the fact that they are also much more affordable than direct competitors, offering greater added value as a result.
SSI also continues to grow every year and has its strongest markets in Asia and Europe, especially in Spain and Germany. The options for finding work are enormous. The limit is up to you.
We, at Family Divers, give you the opportunity to train with all the professional rigor that this type of course entails, but also in a unique environment.
The Maldives are well known for their waters and the life they host.
What better place to get your dive instructor certification and combine it with the experience of diving with us in this little paradise.
The course consists of 12 days of intensive training plus two days of evaluation. Our price includes evaluation fees as well as all the necessary materials for the course.
The day-to-day during the course is varied and we have academic sessions to cover in the classroom as well as a large number of sessions in the water.
In addition to the certification level and experience requirements you must have to sign up for the SSI Dive Instructor course, you must come prepared, having reviewed all the dive theory material. We mean the topics you were studying in your Divemaster course, from the Physics of Diving to Physiology, and including knowledge of the Diving Equipment, for example.
During the course we will focus on the manual that we will assign you once you have made your reservation. We will cover all the business philosophy of SSI as well as the Educational System that will make you see how different we are from other dive agencies, and why we are becoming more and more popular.
We will cover administrative parts and other more practical ones such as academic presentations on various topics from the course manuals that you will be qualified to teach once you become a dive instructor.
The theory will also cover everything related to the practices we will be doing in the water, both in the confined water environment and in open water.
How to conduct a briefing for the water exercise session and everything related to the organization and safety of your group of students while you teach.
The last day of the course will be left free to review what is needed, to do any makeup work if you have failed in any of the training sessions or academic presentations, and if possible, we will do a simulated exam to gain confidence for the following two days that you will have to face in the Instructor Evaluation.
And now it’s time for the crucial moment of these almost two weeks: the Instructor Evaluation. Two days where an SSI certifier will be responsible for guiding the evaluation process and ultimately certifying you as SSI Dive Instructors.
The SSI Dive Instructor course with Family Divers is a demanding and challenging course, but the reward is beyond worth it.
Once certified, you become part of a great family of professionals, and the world opens up to you. Soon, like us, you’ll be able to call the sea your office and enjoy this job by transmitting your passion to other divers and enjoying every minute of it. Blessed be the day we took the plunge and became Dive Instructors!!
