We at ProRec offer a comprehensive Instructor Training Course that will provide you with all of the tools and experience you need to step into your new dive career with confidence. Conducted over 14 days, we also offer a two-day ITC Prep Program so that you can begin your ITC training with your newly acquired newly acquired knowledge and skills fresh in your mind. Our team of dedicated Instructors and Instructor Trainer are on hand to assist you in passing the Instructor Examination and to prepare you for your new career as
an SSI dive professional.
Our goal is for all of our instructor candidates to feel competent, confident and ready to teach within the professional market. We also include exclusive workshops to help our candidates develop their personal CVs and optimize their social presence to maximize employability at the start of their dive career.
The first stage of the ITC is the Assistant Instructor course. This takes five days and provides each candidate with a strong foundation in dive theory, skill development, and procedures of the SSI teaching system.
The second stage of the ITC is the Open Water Instructor course and takes seven days. Here we continue to build and improve upon those foundations that were set down during the AI course. In addition, candidates will progress through the skills and knowledge required to teach the core SSI courses.
After successfully completing your ITC you are required to attend an Instructor Examination. This is a two day evaluative program that will test each instructor candidate’s teaching ability, dive theory knowledge, skill level and understanding of the SSI system. The IE is conducted by specialized SSI professionals who work as SSI Instructor Certifier who assess each candidate as objectively as possible to fairly evaluate their abilities.
After successful completion of the Instructor Examination,
the instructor candidate can now call him or
herself an SSI Instructor.
