Dive Leadership Course

Now that you have earned your Master Diver rating, many divers make the decision to become a dive leader. The SSI Dive Control Specialist course will challenge you with new techniques, skills, knowledge and adventure to become an exceptional dive leader. A Dive Control Specialist or Divecon, will learn how to assist Instructors with Open Water Diver courses and to conduct Snorkeling and Scuba Skills Update courses on their own. The Divecon will lead certified divers on underwater tours, work on dive boats and lead group trips for the dive center. A Divecon is extremely valuable to the dive center to make sure divers have plenty of fun on their diving adventures.
