SEI Diving Scuba Instructor Institute
Becoming a SEI Diving Scuba Diving Instructor

SEI Diving Divemaster

This course is the first in the progression of leadership courses that leads to SEI Diving Instructor.

A certified SEI Diving Divemaster may provide on-site leadership for groups of certified divers during recreational scuba dives or for students during training under the supervision of a SEI Diving Instructor in accordance with SEI Diving standards. Divemasters may conduct the tour portion of the entry-level Open Water certification after the first dive and evaluation of skills has been completed by an Instructor. At no time may a Divemaster assume full responsibility for a scuba class.

The Divemaster course includes at least 38 hours of instruction involving classroom, pool and open water training. Any current SEI Diving Instructor can teach this program. The classroom portion includes staff lectures on Physics, Physiology, Diving Medical Aspects, Decompression Theory, Psychology of Stress, and many other topics. This material is at a level sufficient to provide knowledge for the students throughout the leadership program.

Certification renewal is required annually. Liability insurance for Divemasters working with an Instructor is recommended and is required when working alone.

Prerequisites

  • Age 18 years or older.

  • Medical approval by a physician within the past 12 months.

  • Statement of Understanding/Waiver & Release completed and signed.

  • Hold a SEI Diving DRAM Rescue Diver certification or be certified in scuba rescue by another recognized agency.

  • Be a certified Open Water Diver with a recognized agency.

  • Hold a current First Aid certificate (NSC, AHA, ARC, ASHI or equivalent).

  • Hold a current CPR certificate (NSC, AHA, ARC, ASHI or equivalent).

  • To be considered for any SEI Diving Program Leadership certification, the candidate/student must not have any standards violations or have been dismissed from the SEI Diving program or any other scuba certification agency.

    SEI Diving Assistant Instructor

    Assistant Instructor certification is the second required step in the development toward becoming a SEI Diving Instructor.

    Assistant Instructor certification is a required step in becoming a SEI Diving Instructor. Assistant Instructors may teach the SEI Diving Snorkeling for Families Course. 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 a SEI Diving Instructor. However, an Instructor must evaluate all skills. During open water training for Open Water Diver, the Assistant Instructor may conduct tours only after all skill evaluation and the first dive has been completed by the Instructor. The emphasis of the Assistant Instructor program is to show the participants how and what to teach once they become an Instructor.

    The Assistant Instructor course requires at least 23 hours. Certification renewal is required annually and liability insurance for Assistant Instructors is recommended but not required.

    Prerequisites
