SSI Centers & Resorts

SSI Dive Centers and Resorts — the first choice around the world!

You can be confident in the high caliber of training you will receive from an SSI Authorized Partner. To represent SSI the dive center and/or dive resort must first pass our stringent requirements. We don’t allow just any store to represent our brand. The reason we are so particular is that we want to make sure every student is given the best scuba training and has the ultimate scuba experience every time.

To ensure that you get the highest quality training, SSI Instructors can only work through an authorized SSI Dive Center and/or SSI Dive Resort. Instructors cannot teach independently, which means you won’t inadvertently take a diving certification course from someone doing business out of the trunk of their car. We make sure that all SSI Dive Centers, SSI Dive Resorts, Dive Professionals and Instructors are fully insured and up-to-date on all of the latest training techniques.

SSI Authorized Partners and Members also provide you with consistency. The techniques you learn in your first scuba diving class will be the same used by other facilities wherever your adventures take you. You can be confident that all SSI Dive Centers and SSI Dive Resorts use the same terminology and teach using the same methodology.

SSI Dive Centers & Dive Resorts

SSI Dive Centers and Dive Resorts must adhere to the SSI Dealer & Training Standards. This ensures that you will get the best possible service at all times. Plus, SSI Training standards meet or exceed both International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Recreational Training Council (RSTC) standards. So you know what you are learning will keep you safe.
