About Us – SST

About Us

SST is a Dubai based international company offering globally recognized safety training programs from Ellis & Associates and consultancy for aquatic facilities.

SST is the exclusive provider of Jeff Ellis & Associates products and services outside the United States.

Directors, Richard Carroll and Scott Deisley began their affiliation with Jeff Ellis & Associates in 1987, when they worked together at Raging Waters in Wildwood, New Jersey.  Since that time Richard and Scott have held many volunteer and paid positions within the company. Richard is currently Chief Operating Officer while Scott is a Senior Associate and recipient of the Legacy of Service Award – an award held only by six others in the world. Richard and Scott’s long history with Jeff Ellis and with the company he started 35 years ago is living proof of SST’s stability and focus. SST itself may be a young company, but its foundation is solid and deeply rooted.

We are pleased to offer the International Lifeguard Training Program (ILTP) and First Aid Training to our Training Centers and Comprehensive Aquatic Risk Management Program partners, around the world. Contact us to find a Training Center near you.
