As a diver, you are primarily responsible for the needs and welfare of yourself and your buddy. However, as a Dive Guide, you accept responsibility for the needs and welfare of a group of divers and The SSI Dive Guide program is designed to teach you to become an effective diving leader. During the program, you will study advanced diving academics and develop leadership-level diving and rescue skills. Scuba Schools International supplies you with the academic component or this program.

In your digital training package, you will read about the training philosophy of SSI, role of the Dive Master, stress and rescue as a Dive Master, group management, leading special dive trips and your future career with SSI. You will review the academics of the program in classroom sessions with your Instructor where you will complete your Dive Guide and Science of Diving exams. 


The Dive Shed will provide you with the opportunity to apply your new knowledge in a real working environment, in what is essentially the practical component of Dive Master Training. You will learn to take charge of groups and lead certified divers underwater by joining our Crew in a Trainee capacity, gradually taking on a more active role, with more responsibility, until you and your Instructor feel you are ready to complete your Dive Master Evaluations.

Completing your Dive Master program with The Dive Shed will challenge you with new techniques, skills and knowledge, and provide the foundation you need to become an exceptional Dive Guide. The Dive Shed provides the opportunity to learn many new skills along-side your diver training as we endeavour to create Dive Masters who have excellent work ethic are multi skilled, experienced and employable.

Your Dive Master program will be custom scheduled to suit your availability and work commitments.

The Dive Shed requires all Dive Master Trainees to be mentally and physically fit. You do not need to be an athlete, but dive equipment is heavy and a reasonable fitness level is required.


All candidates must be able to complete a fitness evaluation that includes:

  • 25 metre underwater swim with breath hold using mask and fins

  • 700 metre swim with mask/fins/snorkel in less than 20minutes

  • 15-minute tread water

  • Rescue diver tow (unconscious) 100m under 8 minutes in full equipment.

Please note: 

Working as a professional diver is vastly different from being a recreational diver. There are long days, weekend work and the job can be physically demanding, BUT we are rewarded with a divers lifestyle and the opportunity to meet other divers from all over the world, who share our passion and WE get to show them the wonders of the marine world. 


The Dive Shed Dive Master Program is designed for each candidate to gain valuable experience while training. This is not a 10 day, pay your money, here’s your certification course. You will receive dive industry training beyond the scope of the Dive Guide program leading you to become a more skilled, more knowledgeable, more EMPLOYABLE Dive Professional upon certification.
