During your SSI Divemaster program, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom (science of diving program) and independent study. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems. You put this knowledge into action through a series of practical training exercises and workshops.
