The Instructor Training Course (ITC) will prepare you pass a 2 day Instructor Examination conducted right here on Koh Tao. SSI evaluates to a much higher standard than other diving agencies requiring a passing score of at least 90% in the 100 question, multiple choice, final exam, two 15 minute academic presentations, a full rescue assessment including O2 administration and CPR, a swim test, then on-the-spot open water and pool presentations over 2 full days.


Despite this, we proudly boast a 100% success rate for all our previous candidates and offer a guaranteed pass or we cover the costs if you need to be re-evaluated at a later date.

Whats Involved?

There’s no denying that dive instructors have really awesome jobs… and a majority of them came to Koh Tao, fell in love with the paradise, and never left! There’s absolutely nothing preventing you from doing exactly the same thing, and with Big Blue Pro you can become a Scuba Schools International (SSI) instructor in a matter of weeks.

If you are already a Dive Master, you can become an SSI instructor in only 14 days for 63,115 baht, which includes all the materials, training, Instructor Exam and fees. As currently there are more positions available than SSI instructors, jobs are waiting for you!

The Big Blue dive resort on the island of Koh Tao, Thailand, offers first class instructor training as well as unlimited free fun diving, discounts in the bar and restaurant and the opportunity to team-teach with instructors on courses to gain experience and certifications. Freelance work is always available to graduates of the Instructor Training Course as well as team-teaching.
