SSI is the only agency that recognizes our dive professionals for reaching targeted milestones. This is an opportunity to commemorate your hard-won accomplishments and show the world you are one of diving’s elite dive professionals.
To achieve higher levels, set goals and work towards them as you better your career. Train students and take additional training to achieve higher instructor levels. The sum of personal qualification levels, training experience, and years of being a professional in the industry determine your personal level.
Each time you reach a new level in training, you are automatically rewarded with an upgraded recognition card. These cards symbolize excellence, commitment and loyalty in diving. The more courses you lead and divers you train, the higher levels of recognition – Century-, Gold 500-, Platinum 1000- and Platinum Pro 5000 Instructor. Any SSI Dive Professional is entitled to take part in the recognition program. All you have to do is to get out there and train to get the credit you deserve!
