SSI Instructor Training Courses

Become a SSI Instructor @ Captain Morgan’s


SSI Instructor Training Course (ITC) Overview

The SSI ITC is the state-of-the-art Instructor course. ITC includes an Academic part, confined water sessions and open water sessions over 10 days.


All the academic study must be completed online or offline before you arrive to Utila allowing more time for practical sessions avoiding “long boring classroom sessions”! SSI online or offline training is free-of-charge, means Captain Morgan’s will not charge you extra for this online/offline training option. After you complete your online training, you will take the SSI DiveControl Specialist and ITC exams, which are written tests on the topics studied. After you pass the exams you will start a 10 days ITC focused in training you to become a great instructor and not just develop you to pass an IE!
