Instructor Crossover


Dive professionals who hold an Instructor rating from another recognised diver training agency may be eligible to enrol in the Scuba Schools International, Cross Over Program.

This program recognises prior learning (RPL) and past instructor training.
PRODIVE/SSI now provide a no hassle pathway, to become a Scuba Schools International Instructor. Without you being required to go back to complete knowledge and skill assessment on skills and knowledge, you should have already mastered it.


The Crossover program is conducted over two days with our Instructor trainer, in a very small group, with SSI Instructor orientations, classroom presentations and in-water presentations, as well as water skills exercises, in our purpose-built, indoor heated, training pool.

ISO-certified scuba training agencies, WRSTC member agencies and federations included but are not limited to NAUI, PADI, SDI, TDI/SDI, IANTD, CMAS or BSAC.


However, such individuals may have to undertake some additional training in respect to academic knowledge and skill development applicable to your current training agency and to the current level of training, SSI requires.

Note that SSI generally requires a higher level of academic knowledge, with more in-water skills than most other, training agencies. However, be aware the majority of the SSI Cross Over Program focuses on developing your knowledge and familiarity with the SSI system of training, rather than a desire on our part to completely retrain you.

Your Instructor crossover training will take place over two days, then an internship will be conducted with real customers under the direct supervision of our experience Pro-Dive Central Coast Instructor Trainers, where you will teach an Open Water Course.

All instructors will be mentored by knowledgeable and experienced Instructor Trainers.

The minimum age is 18 years

Current First Aid, CPR and oxygen provider certification
