Ocean Tribe would like to congratulate the successful candidates from the August 2017 SSI Dive Instructor Course in Kenya. Well done to Nicolas Yun from France, Kim Bassen from Kenya, and Lekha Mohan from India on successful completion of the SSI Instructor Training Course (ITC) and Instructor Evaluation (IE) held in Diani Beach, Kenya in August 2017.
Nicolas, Kim and Lekha are now qualified SSI Open Water Instructors with the additional ratings of Perfect Buoyancy Instructor, Enriched Air Nitrox Instructor, Diver Stress and Rescue Instructor, Scuba Rangers Instructor and Dive Guide Instructor included. They will also be taking SSI Instructor Training Seminars at Ocean Tribe to gain further teaching credentials to maximise their employability and we are delighted to say all are doing the Disabled Divers International (DDI) Instructor Training course to be able to offer diving to people with disabilities.
The SSI Instructor Training course in Kenya was run by SSI Instructor Trainer and Ocean Tribe Owner Mark Slingo. The course was divided into the SSI Assistant Instructor Course and the SSI Open Water Instructor course over the course of 10 days. Mark remarked on the transformation of the candidates over the course of the dive instructor course in Kenya and how delighted he was when they successfully completed the IE with the SSI Instructor Certifiers.
The Instructor Evaluation was conducted over two days by SSI Instructor Certifiers Bryan Coetzee and Tinus Oppermann. Thank you guys for coming all the way from South Africa to conduct the evaluation and hope you enjoyed the Kenyan diving and lifestyle after the IE. We look forward to welcoming you to Kenya again soon.
The next SSI dive Instructor Training course to be held at Ocean Tribe will be 23 November with the IE to be held on 5-7 December.
