In addition to learning new skills and developing a deeper understanding of scuba diving and physiology, it’s also incredibly fun and rewarding.

 

GR8 DIVN is ready to help you launch your professional career. We’re able to certify professionals from Dive Guide through Open Water Instructor and can cross over existing professional ratings from other certifying agencies. Contact us today to learn how you can share your passion for scuba diving and do what you really love.

 

We allow for flexibility in the span of time it takes to complete the full professional course, we encourage our instructors to take time to practice their new skills before embarking on the next step of the program.

The Dive Professional track:

Step 1: Dive Guide/Dive Master.  Dive Guide Certification is the entry level for a GR8 DIVN SSI Dive Professional and qualifies a person to guide dive excursions for certified Open Water Divers and teach Scuba Skills Updates for certified divers. Dive Master is a rating awarded after a Dive Guide completes the Science of Diving Specialty.

 

Step 2: Dive Control Specialist Certification qualifies a person to assist a GR8 DIVN SSI Open Water Instructor in teaching certified and non certified divers.

 

Step 3: Open Water Instructor Training prepares a student for the Open Water Instructor Final Examination, which is administered by a SSI Instructor Certifier.

 

Step 4:  The Instructor Examination is conducted over a two day period where an Instructor Certifier evaluates the Instructor Candidate on their teaching ability, knowledge, and skills demonstrations.  After successful completion, the candidate is awarded the Open Water Instructor Certification
