Completing the SSI Dive Instructor Course in Bali

So you are passionate about diving and the underwater world and want to share your passion? Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge and skills with fellow divers? Do you want to convert your passion for diving into a profession and earn money? Then doing the SSI Dive Instructor Course will make sense to you.

It’s a big responsibility to teach new divers to safely explore the underwater world. As a SSI Dive Instructor you also get to teach continuing diving education programs that create enthusiastic divers.

With our SSI Dive Instructor Course, you are expected to take an active role in the training process or real guests. We further teach sustainable diving practices with the right attitude and role modelling. Because we are a small family dive shop you get to know the entire operation from A to Z. 

During the training course you will develop your leadership skills and learn how to pass on your knowledge and experience to your students. Nico, the owner of the dive centre, takes his role very seriously to train dedicated, patient and caring diving instructors.

About the SSI Dive Instructor Course

The SSI Dive Instructor Course will prepare you fully for your SSI Instructor Examination Day.

Throughout the course Nico will be teaching you how to demonstrate diving skills from beginner to advanced, and pro divers.

Nico will help you to prepare both theory and practical skills so you become a confident and prepared dive instructor. This includes passing on his lifelong experience as dive instructor, dive center manager and owner.

Duration for the SSI Dive Instructor Course

The duration of the course depends highly on how fast you can absorb the diving theory and learn to demonstrate diving skills. Typically we allocate 2-3 weeks to prepare for the Instructor examination. We can tailor the length to your time requirements, however we want you to be a confident Dive Professional before we send you to the Instructor examination. Feel free to contact us anytime to discuss your questions.

What differentiates us from other Dive Centres

At Nico Dives Cool we want you to have the best learning experience possible. This is why Nico will typically not take more than two (2) SSI Dive Instructor Course students at any given time. Compared to other large dive centres you get a highly personalised course and diving practice experience. Very often our Nico will only teach one Dive Instructor at a time. This is different to larger diver centres where Dive Instructor Trainees learn and practice together and with each other. Also, this is the key reasons why Nico Dives Cool has such an amazing 5-Star reputation amongst its customers. Simply let us know your preferences and we will make sure that you have a fantastic learning experience.
