SSI DIVEMASTER (DM)
Dive Guide plus the Science of Diving program equals Divemaster. Divemasters can assist SSI Instructors with pool/confined water and open water training under the direct supervision of an SSI Instructor. This brings valued experience for all future diving carriers!
The Dive Guide and Divemaster qualifications you earn from our program will guide you in becoming a fantastic, service oriented, employable pro.
During your Internship you will get to dive and learn what becoming a working professional is all about. While training for your course you get to enjoy diving in small groups on fast boats at all of the best dive sites on Roatan.
It is a good idea if you are in good physical shape and have a friendly and fun loving personality. Respect for nature and being a water lover of at least 18 years of age is important as well.
