SSI was established in 1970 by a group of divers who were passionate about making it possible for anyone to learn to scuba dive. They are represented in more than 110 countries with over 2800 international locations and provide materials in over 30 languages.
Since June 1, 2010, Scuba Schools International is one of the few training agencies who qualified for a Global ISO Certification. 7 SSI Programs, 5 for divers and 2 for instructors, have certifications that meet the International Standards – ISO 11121 for Try Scuba Diving, ISO 24801-1 to – 3 for Scuba Diver to Dive Guide, ISO 11107 for Enriched Air Nitrox and 24802-1 and -2 for Dive Control Specialist and Open Water Instructor. Due to that the SSI C-Cards for the appropriate ratings will carry the ISO quality label in the future.
SSI International: International Headquarters is where the important standardisation of SSI diving certification and education happens. This is where SSI Training Standards are written, and where the skills and techniques for SSI programs are created. This is also where we produce educational materials and, with the help of our Service Centres, translate them into many languages.
SSI Service Centres: SSI’s Service Centres oversee and service the SSI Dive Centres, Dive Resorts and Dive Professionals of the assigned area. SSI Dive Centres and Dive Resorts: This is an extensive network of professional businesses that operate as scuba diving or freediving schools for diver and dive professional training, and provide a variety of diving destinations for their customers.
