We provide all of the materials you will need for the SSI Dive Guide plus the SSI Science of Diving that will certify you as an SSI Divemaster.  Our relaxed approach means that there is no time limit to complete the course and the programme can be completed in as little as 4 weeks, but we recommend you take at least 6 weeks to 8 weeks.  As there is no pressure to finish, you can take as long as you wish, but 2 to 3 months is better.  You will need 40 logged dives to start the course and a minimum of 60 to finish but we like to give 80 logged dives to give you more experience and coaching.  While you will have various theory and skill sessions to attend, be required to assist on courses with our professional team and have some self study, you can also fun dive as much as you like (subject to availability of course), allowing you to visit Koh Tao’s amazing dive sites and learn to navigate them for when you lead fun divers.

You will develop your dive skills and learn to become a professional diver, which includes more than what you might think: diving logistics, basic equipment maintenance, customer service skills, selling skills and confidence.  You will have the opportunity to become certified in various different specialty areas, including Deep diving, Enriched Air Nitrox and Wreck diving.  After all, specialty training is what will make you stand out from the rest and allows you to guide customers beyond open water and advanced levels.

You will have already heard of Koh Tao or maybe spent some time on the island already so you know what it has to offer to help you live your dream at the start of your professional diving career.  We can also help with your accommodation, Koh Tao has many choices and can cater for all requirements and budgets.
