The Instructor Training Course (ITC) will prepare you pass a 2 day Instructor Examination conducted right here on Koh Tao. SSI evaluates to a much higher standard than other diving agencies requiring a passing score of at least 90% in the 100 question, multiple choice, final exam, two 15 minute academic presentations, a full rescue assessment including O2 administration and CPR, a swim test, then on-the-spot open water and pool presentations over 2 full days.
Despite this, we proudly boast a 100% success rate for all our previous candidates and offer a guaranteed pass or we cover the costs if you need to be re-evaluated at a later date.
After the ITC you will be an Open Water Instructor and a Specialty instructor, and certified to teach
- Snorkel Diver
- Try Scuba Diving (pool and open water)
- Open Water Diver
- Advanced Adventurer
