We will work a lot on pedagogy and teaching, but we will also deal with marketing and communication topics that will allow you to learn about opening your own dive centre, if you wish to do so later on. A good understanding of the diving industry and business is also necessary to become a good diving instructor.

The instructor training lasts one week, if you are already a Dive control specialist, 12 days if you are only divemaster.

Once the ITC “Instructor Training Course” is completed, you will be required to take a 2-day exam with a Certified Instructor chosen by SSI.
