Becoming an SSI Open Water Diver is the best way to start your scuba adventure!
We make sure you are truly comfortable with the skills and equipment you will use. Getting started is easy! Sign up for an Open Water course or get your feet wet with the SSI Scuba Diver program.
SSI Training is designed so you can learn the academics at your own pace when it is convenient for you. We 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 your instructor 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.

Scuba Diver is the perfect course for those who do not have time to complete an entire Open Water Diver Program. The content of this program represents about half of a complete scuba diving certification program (SSI Open Water). You can then complete the second half and become a certified diver at another time, anywhere that is convenient for you.
This program allows you to get out there and experience diving to the fullest. You will be trained in the proper skills, knowledge, equipment and experience required to feel safe and confident during your open water dives, as well as have an SSI Instructor as your escort to guide you on your adventures.
Certified Scuba Divers are entitled to go diving under the direct supervision of a Dive Leader up to a maximum depth of 40 feet/12 metres.
When you decide to complete your certification, the Scuba Diver Program can be fully credited to your course. This way you will not have to redo any part of the program twice. After a short skill update you can complete your Open Water Diver rating.
At the end of the program you will receive your SCUBA DIVER Certificate indicating the successful completion of this program. This certificate entitles you to take part in guided dives all over the world. If you ever decide to continue your training and become a certified diver just contact your local SSI Training Facility for details on how to complete your SSI OPEN WATER DIVER rating.
