The Dive Con is a combination of Dive Master and Assistant Instructor. As a rule of thumb, in the Dive Master role you are directly responsible for and work primarily with certified divers. In the assistant instructor role, you are indirectly responsible for, and work primarily with, uncertified divers in training. The perfect step to becoming an Instructor!
To enrol on the SSI Dive Con course, you must be 18 years or older. You must have logged at least 24 open water dives. You will need proof of a current CPR and First Aid qualification, along with a current medical exam.
What you will learn
As a Dive Master, you will lead certified divers on underwater tours, work on dive boats, lead trips, and conduct Scuba Review courses. You will use group management, accident prevention and specialized diving skills. Stress recognition and management are also vital to effective dive mastering, while a fundamental understanding of teaching techniques is essential to conduct Review courses.
As an Assistant Instructor, you will help instructors manage students underwater, set up classrooms, and move equipment. In addition to assisting, you can actually teach classroom and pool skills under the direct supervision of an SSI Instructor. Group management, leadership level diving, and stress recognition skills are vital to the assistant instructor role. Also, assistant instructors build valuable experience toward becoming Instructors themselves someday.
You will need to have logged 60 dives for certification.
Qualification – what this means
As a Dive Con, you can lead certified divers, assist SSI instructors, perform the Scuba review courses, and conduct Try Scuba in the pool.
