    I will be in Izmir for a few days, I haven't found any official centers in SSi locater website.(unlike padi)
    is it true?
    (I am a PADI diver looking to switch to SSI due to expensive study materials and license cost altogether)

    What do you mean by "switching"?
    If you are just looking for a place to dive it doesn't matter. If you are taking another course it doesn't matter either. You aren't switching by taking the next training with someone else any more than you are switching when you choose not to eat at the same restaurant every time.
    The only time your choice of agency matters is when you decide to become a professional.
    Most people don't even have a choice of agency since they just go with what is available locally. If you have a choice you are lucky.
    Don't shop on price of materials. Shop convenience, quality of instructor, and what you want being available where and when you want it.

    It's entirely likely - SSI does not have the coverage worldwide PADI does.

    The map in the locator should show all their centers nearby or in Iran.

    BtW The location I'm asking about is Izmir, Turkey
    yes true.that's why I hoping for a local or even someone like me to know a place over there.because sometimes the database of the agency website is not entirely complete or update.or it may not be a centre but an SSI instructor is available on A not named SSi centre?
