As a SSI Assistant Instructor you will lead certified divers on underwater tours, work on dive boats, lead trips, and conduct Scuba Skills Update 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 e.g. Try Scuba Diving programs.

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.

    Fantastic experience, couldn't recommend more. Three of us signed up for the Open Water Diver course, 2 beach dives and 2 boat dives. We were lucky to have a super relaxed instructor and another trainee instructor to ourselves, which particularly helped ease me when I had a mini panic attack on first entry in the beach dive. The equipment seemed state of the art, from the deep container pool at the training centre to the wetsuits, regulators, diving computers etc. And we got amazing photos in the mix! Seriously above and beyond what other diving centers appear to offer, and a really high bar to beat for our future dives!read more

    I just did 2 day trips with Aloha Diving and it was simply perfect. Thank you! To be more precise: The communication with Alice and Simon (owner of Aloha Diving) prior to the dives was easy and both were very responsive. During the day trips, which they do in corporation with another company, everything was well organized, they have good rental equipment and most important safety matters for them! To conclude: I can highly recommend Aloha more
