    I am currently in the NAUI program, but family concerns may cause me to have to relocate to an area where there is no NAUI shop. What are the requirements to crossover my NAUI DM/Instructor certs to SSI?

    If you are NAUI current you almost certainly meet most of the requirements already. You'll have to take the SSI Instructor Training Course and get all the SSI instructor materials. The first thing you want to do though is find your local SSI shop and make sure you like each other. You have to be associated with a shop (SSI does not do independent teaching). They can give you the cost details. Not all shops necessarily run Instructor training courses on a regular schedule.
