SSI DIVE CONTROL SPECIALIST
This is a dive leader course, a combination of PADI's Divemaster and Assistant Instructor. Therefore as a Dive Control Specialist also known as DiveCon, you are allowed to teach certain courses unlike a PADI Divemaster.
Since this is a dive leader course, we will not offer this course in a one or two week format. This course will take around 4 months, because we believe as a dive leader you need to be very knowledgeable about every aspect of SCUBA and teaching SCUBA. You will be required to assist with at least two Open Water Classes. By assist, we mean you are there for the entire course of the class.
We believe in making qualified dive leaders and not just issuing certification cards. Lloyd Bailey's Scuba and Watersports refuses to send unqualified dive leaders out into the SCUBA community to teach and watch over other scuba divers. This is why our DiveCon program is so long, in some instances it might be shorter depending on the experience and skills of the DiveCon candidates.
DiveCon certification will give you valuable teaching experience to prepare you for an Instructor Course.
DiveCons who have an active
