SSI Training is designed so you can learn the academics at your own pace when it is convenient for you. SSI will support you by colored manuals, DVDs and free Online Training offers to make sure you have enough training options.

For your pool and open water training we will fit you to your scuba equipment so you will become comfortable in your “second skin.” You will get enough practice time to adapt yourself to the underwater environment before you start with your open water training dives.

Once you have completed your initial training you will be a certified SSI Diver. SSI certification is recognized world wide so your diving experiences will be limitless.

This course includes a three-step process under the guidance of one of our SSI Instructors and Dive Control Specialists:

  1. Academic training
  2. Confined water skills (training) in a pool
  3. Open water certification dives in a lake or ocean environment.
