Share your passion for diving with your future students by becoming an SSI Open Water Instructor. SSI (Scuba Schools International) is one of the largest diving training agencies worldwide with dive centers all over the world and leaders in the online learning. Our Instructor Training Course at Ecomarine Utila (ITC) will teach you to instruct divers in the safest and most thorough way possible, creating not only a Dive Instructor but a professional Dive Instructor. In our ITC we will share our ample dive experience with you. Our aim is not just to make you confident in the classroom and the swimming pool/confined waters and open waters, but to give you a good understanding on how courses are best built up and how you can plan these in the best way for the students and yourself. By the time you start your first course, you will feel ready and able to teach with upmost confidence. Teaching people to dive is both demanding and fun. You will have a big responsibility over your students, but it is very rewarding to see the big smiles on your students faces at the end of the day. It really is probably one of the best jobs in the world!
