Dive Professional Crossover

The SSI Dive Professional Crossover program provides an orientation to SSI philosophies and procedures to dive professionals from other recognized scuba training agencies.

It provides the knowledge and skills needed to conduct SSI programs equivalent to their existing quali􀀩cations in a safe and enjoyable manner.

The intent of the SSI Dive Professional Update program is to update and reactivate SSI Dive Professionals that have been in inactive or cancelled status for at least two (2) years.

Administrative Requirements

Prior to training, candidates must complete the program-speci􀀩c Training Record, including:

  • Statement of Understanding

  • Professional Training Assumption of Risk and Liability Release

  • SSI Dive Professional Agreement


All candidates participating in professional level training must have digital copies of the following documents uploaded into MySSI before the final certification(s) can be issued:

  • RSTC Medical Statement signed by a physician within one (1) year

  • Proof of CPR training within two (2) years

  • Proof of First Aid training within two (2) years

  • Proof of Oxygen First Aid training within (2) years

Candidate Prerequisites

  • Minimum age: 18 years old.

  • Must have held an equivalent certi􀀩cation from a recognized training agency within the last two (2) years.

  • Must meet the minimum certi􀀩cation requirements for the certi􀀩cation being crossed over.

  • A Divemaster Professional Crossover candidate must have completed the Science of Diving knowledge and skill assessment.

  • Dive professionals from other agencies who have been inactive for greater than two (2) years must follow the Returning to Active Status standards.

Requirements For Completion

  • Pass all requirements and evaluations listed in the instructor manual for the SSI Professional Crossover.

  • Complete the Crossover final exam with a passing score of at least 90%.

Dive Professionals from Recognized Training Agencies

Dive Professionals certified by any SSI-recognized training agency or federation may attend an SSI Dive Professional Crossover program.


Divemaster candidates certified by a non-SSI recognized training agency or federation must successfully complete an SSI Experienced Diver Test to obtain a non-professional Dive Guide certification. After earning that certi􀀩cation, they can enter active status as an SSI Professional, and earn the Divemaster recognition rating after completing the SSI Science of Diving program.


Open Water Instructor-level or higher candidates certified by a non-SSI recognized agency or federation may attend an SSI Professional Crossover, but cannot be certified without attending an additional Instructor Evaluation to evaluate their SSI Professional-level knowledge and skill assessment. An active status SSI Instructor Certifier may conduct both the Professional Crossover and the Instructor Evaluation for the candidate.
