Why should I choose to be SSI diving instructor?

In addition to the world-class recognition of SSI (especially in Europe and Southeast Asia), diving professionals need to process quite an amount of documents for their students (such as liability form, privacy policy statements, training records, etc.). Adequate technical support and backend operations are important considerations. The strength of SSI goes to their all-rounded digital teaching, e-logbook and certification system, which allow the professionals to focus on teaching, rather than admin work.
