    What is different with ausi to ssi?

    AUSI is Associated Underwater Scuba Instructors
    SSI is Scuba Schools International

    These are very different organisations with a common purpose.

    I guess the main difference is that AUSI runs an Open License system which is available for anyone to see on the web. Also, instructors are not charged to be AUSI Instructors.

    Can you be more specific about your interest?
