Sharky’s is an SSI Instructor Training Center.

Sharky’s has met or exceeded all requirements for SSI Dive Centers. In addition they offer training and career opportunities for SSI Dive Professionals which will enable you to fulfill your dream of becoming an SSI Instructor, providing training year-round. Our instructor-to-student ratio is high, with extra hands always available to provide one-on-one instruction to students requiring extra attention.

This Dive Center offers SSI Extended Range- and SSI Technical Extended Range Programs at various levels.

We also offer high-quality rental equipment, which is included for pool sessions with certain courses  (except the items the student must purchase.)

Before you begin your training course with Sharky’s Scuba Supply, please take a moment to read the student Statement of Understanding. We also ask you to please come in at least a week in advance, and at least an hour before closing, to sign up for your course. This gives you enough time to fill out your medical form, get fitted for gear and read through your required learning materials.

Classroom sessions are held on the second floor of 1226 Wellington (above Sharky’s/Home Hardware), and pool sessions are just 5 minutes away at the Plant Pool (930 Somerset Street West). CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS.
