A Life-Changing Experience: About the SSI Divemaster

The SSI Divemaster Course with New Way Diving offers you the chance to leave your office life behind, and gain the ability to work around the world for the largest and most recognised certification agency in the world – SSI.

The SSI Divemaster Course will allow you to work in exotic locations all around the world, leading people on dives, assisting with students in training, coordinating Dive Shop logistics, and even conducting some courses individually.

We run the course over two months, with most people completing the course in around 6 weeks. During this time, other than completing up to five dives every day, we run each intern through more in-depth diving theory, shallow water skill developments, Deep Diving and Navigation workshops, as well as have you assist with multiple students in training.

Part of the beauty of joining New Way Diving for this course is that all of this training takes place with our experienced instructors in small groups to assure each candidate receives adequate attention and time to improve on their Divemaster ability.

You will be assigned a mentor when you start, who’s job is to be your main reference. However, due to the nature of our bustling little dive school, and the fact that all our Instructors teach courses at every level, you will very quickly become involved with every instructor and Divemaster, and become a part of the New Way Diving Family!

As your SSI Divemaster Course continues, and your ability grows, you will be given increased responsibility, from choosing the dive sites, helping with shop logistics, assisting and conducting various courses, as well as leading certified divers on tours of our fantastic dive sites.

You must have completed your SSI Open Water Course before taking this course.

What is unique about New Way Diving?

  • Small Groups – Unlike some of the larger dive schools, New Way prefer a small and friendly approach. There is a maximum group size of 4 students to 1 instructor, which assures that each student receives the necessary attention.
  • Environmentally Active – New Way Diving are extremely active in making the island of Koh Tao a better place for creatures great and small. They host regular beach and reef clean-ups which you can get involved with while you’re there!
  • No Swimming Pool Learning – All of the training at New Way takes place in the sea in calm, warm shallow waters to begin with. Why spend hours in a swimming pool watching hairs and plasters float past in order to then go diving in the sea? Instead, you can start immediately in the ocean and watch the beautiful marine life from your first breath underwater!
  • More Dives – Because of the ‘straight to sea’ policy, New Way students leave Koh Tao with more dives than normal since there is a short diving tour after each skill segment is complete, meaning that you will finish having completed up to six dives instead of the usual four. This gives you more chance to explore the amazing dive sites around Koh Tao.
  • Sail Rock! – Unlike other dive schools, New Way dive at Sail Rock, the best dive site in the Gulf of Thailand EVERY DAY. This is now a standard part of every Open Water Course, weather permitting!
