Scuba Schools International (SSI) the premier education and business support company welcomes R.J. Hartman as the new SSI Business Consultant for the Northeast. 

R.J. Hartman began his dive career in 1994 on a family vacation to Mexico and has been diving ever since. He quickly became fascinated with wreck diving and in short order, conducted hundreds of dives on the shipwrecks in the waters of New York and New Jersey. In 1999, he became an SSI Dive Control Specialist Instructor. After certifying hundreds of divers he went on to earn his SSI Scuba Instructor Trainer in 2004 and, ultimately an Instructor Certifier in 2006.
R.J. has led multiple technical expeditions to the famed shipwreck, Andrea Doria and numerous charters to other deep North Atlantic shipwrecks such as the SS Carolina, U-869, Submarine S-5, E.M. Clark and many others. 

"R.J.s wealth of technical and retail experience makes him the perfect fit for the Northeast. We view his appointment as a sign of our commitment to being the leader in the Northeast. We are very fortunate to find someone of RJs background to fulfill this position," stated Doug McNeese, SSI President and CEO.

Mr. Hartman commented, "I am excited to get the opportunity to help develop the Northeast territory. I look forward to working with the SSI Dive Centers and Dive Professionals to further develop the Northeast. I am fortunate to be joining such a respected company that prides itself in supporting dive centers."
