The pinnacle of SSI’s dive professional training is the desirable Instructor Trainer rating. SSI Instructor Trainers are qualified to teach the Instructor Training Course (ITC) and prepare future SSI Instructors for their Instructor Evaluation(IE). This is one of the most rewarding and most challenging experiences an Instructor can perform. The Instructor Trainer Seminar (ITS) is an international event where you will meet instructors from all over the world. You will experience intensive training and evaluations as well as the opportunity to build a personal network with people from other countries who share your passion. This is your chance to become “The Ultimate Dive Instructor.” Once you have successfully passed the Instructor Trainer Seminar you can teach and issue certifications for Instructor Training Courses, Specialty Instructor and Dive Control Specialist Instructor, and Instructor Crossover programs. You will have a significant impact on the quality of future instructors. The intent of the SSI Freediving Instructor Trainer Seminar is to provide individuals with instructor-level knowledge and skills, and evaluate their ability to conduct Freediving Instructor programs in a safe and enjoyable manner.

Lotta Ericson: SSI Freediving Training Director

As one of the most experienced freediving professionals worldwide and former world record holder, Lotta is striving to raise the bar of freediving and challenge old perceptions and philosophies in order to make exceptional divers and instructors. Her passion lies in teaching and passing on freediving knowledge and skills at user, instructor and instructor trainer level. She is focused on making freediving aspirational, cool and exciting with the goal of attracting new divers and retaining existing ones. Lotta and her partner Linda Paganelli own one of the largest certifying chains of Freediving centers worldwide (Freedive International) with subsidiaries in Egypt (Freedive dahab), Thailand (Blue Immersion, Maya Freediving), Tanzania (Extrem Blue Water) and Spain (Atlantis Freediving). Both have been contributing to the new freediving materials for SSI. As one of the hardest working professionals in diving, you can find Lotta teaching almost every day either in one of her centers or in other destinations around the world. “Having seen the benefits the SSI system brings to freediving, I am proud to take the next step and help to develop a strong and competent Instructor Trainer network globally!” commented Lotta Ericson, SSI Freediving Training Director.

“Over the next few months SSI will continue to expand its international network of Freediving Training Directors to ensure the continued development of new programs and trainers over all major regions and languages” added Guido Waetzig, SSI Vice President of Training & Development. In this first quarter, SSI 2014 has already announced the appointment of world record holder Gianluca Genoni as its new Director of Freediving Southern Europe. Gianluca has already started working closely with the SSI trainer teams in Italy, France, Spain and Greece. Finally SSI has entered into an agreement with Christian Redl, another world record holder, to develop a freediving adventure program. Gerald Skrobanek, SSI President said “It is great to have Lotta and this great team of trainers and athletes on board. Freediving will remain a pillar of the SSI training programs.” Remember, SSI is not just a certification agency. WE ARE YOUR PARTNER IN BUSINESS! What we have to offer around the world is way ahead of even much larger companies.lotta-ssi
