This course will teach you the basics of what it takes to become a Scuba Professional.
What you need to know:
The Assistant Instructor certification is the second required step in the development toward becoming a SEI Instructor.
This course requires approximately 35-40 hours of training.
During the Open Water Diver course, Assistant Instructors may be used in all aspects of classroom and pool
or confined water training under the supervision of the Scuba Educators International Instructor.
However, an Instructor must evaluate all skills. During open water training for Open Water Diver, the Assistant
Instructor may conduct open water tours only after the first dive and all skill evaluations have been completed by the Instructor.
Assistant Instructors may teach the Scuba Educators International Snorkeling for Families Course.
Assistant Instructors with insurance may also teach the classroom and pool or open water portions of the Dive Refreshed program without additional supervision.
This program is designed as the third phase of instruction in the Scuba Educators International leadership
series. Instructor certification permits an individual to teach scuba students how to become competent
divers. The Instructor must always promote safe diving and uphold the standards of Scuba Educators
International. The Instructor is also encouraged to help develop scuba leadership for Scuba Educators
International by instructing Divemasters and Assistant Instructors
The objective of this program is to bring qualified instructors from other scuba training agencies into the
Scuba Educators International Program. A portion of this program is dedicated to giving the candidates an
appreciation of the history and philosophies of Scuba Educators International. The Instructor Trainer,
through testing and evaluation, will insure that the candidate has the qualities that will serve credit to our program
PRICES AND SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
SEI has partnered with Hartsville YMCA of the Upper Pee Dee to offer Scuba.
