WE WANT YOU - Free SSI Crossover Kit

SSI, the world’s largest professional dive business-based training agency, has launched the "We want you" promotion - a sponsored Professional SSI Crossover Kit for all Scuba and Freediving Professionals.

Building on the successful SSI Science of Diving campaign.

SSI continues to add new Training Centers and Professionals by supporting them through virtual training, promotional ideas, and product improvements. One example of this support was the Free SSI Science of Diving Campaign. The promotion was overwhelmingly successful with more than 50,000 registrations worldwide totaling more than 3.5 million in retail support. Now, SSI wants to do the same thing by launching the WE WANT YOU Promotion globally. The campaign goals are to:
  • Acquire new Professionals to fix the permanent shortage of SSI Professionals for both SSI Training Centers in local and resort markets.
  • Connect new SSI dive professionals to the SSI Instructor Trainer Network to promote Specialty Instructor and Assistant Instructor Trainer training.
Guido Waetzig, CEO SSI International GmbH, says: "The SSI Network is expanding so rapidly that the demand for Professionals exceeds supply. The WE WANT YOU Promotion is designed to compensate for this shortage, support business recovery, and stimulate further international growth!"

How the WE WANT YOU SSI Crossover Promotion will work.

1. Crossover Registration.

Professionals can simply go to any SSI Training Center and register or register directly online and SSI will issue the digital SSI Crossover Kit.

2. Academic Training.

Prior to attending the Virtual Crossover, all candidates are required to finish the Homestudy Crossover materials and take the Online Final Exam. Once completed, SSI will schedule the Virtual Academic and Skills Video Sessions and in-water training.

3. In-Water Training. 

The In-Water Session will require a confined water session for a skills review to be performed by an Instructor Trainer. This session is organized centrally by the Service Center.

4. Fees.

For all active Professionals, SSI will sponsor the Digital SSI Crossover Kit and fund all equivalent certifications. If professionals attend the Virtual Academic and in-water training, they have to pay a registration fee, which includes the Crossover Training, Physical Materials, and Professional Renewal until the end of 2021.

5. Promotion Runtime. 

The sponsored Professional SSI Crossover Kit will run from September 1, 2020, to January 31, 2021, with the mandatory In-Water Training sessions beginning October 15, 2020, onwards.
