None and none. Find a good instructor through others that have been taught by them. Agencies are only as good as the people who teach for them.
SSI has one difference in that you cannot be an "independant" Instructor and teach for them. You have to teach through a store. Neither an advantage nor disadvantage in my book. There are a lot of good Instructor that are smart enough to not teach through stores.....; )
I do not know the SSI standards. The local shop that I know that does teach through them does not offer 2 and 3 day classes. My impression is that they are more thorough than some of the other shops. It may be the owner or the agency, I do not know.
