Comfort through Repetition

By practicing each skill you’ve learned throughout each level of your training, your actions become conditioned responses - second nature! SSI training ensures you retain what you’ve already learned, while you continue to learn more. As a result, diving remains fun, not an exercise in memory recall or mental gymnastics.

SSI’s Total Systems Approach

SSI - Scuba Schools International has developed three systems to help you acquire the proper knowledge, skills, equipment, and experience necessary for quality long-term diving.

SSI’s educational system allows you to choose when you want to study, so you can learn the information at your own pace, when it best fits into your schedule. In-class and pool training will reinforce everything you have learned.

Supported by FREE online academics, an interactive learn how to scuba dive DVD, classroom training, full-color manual, dive tables, training record, and a supplement review, you can learn the academics at your own pace.

All of these items are a part of SSI’s total teaching system, which captivates students young and old, and makes instructing fun and multi-faceted. You choose the way that you are most comfortable learning. Whether it’s in the classroom, online or in the comfort of your own home — it’s up to you.

Total Diving System

The Total Diving System includes all the equipment you need to explore the spectacular underwater world. When you first begin training, you will be introduced to your Total Diving System and the importance of knowing and understanding your scuba equipment.

Total DiveLog System

The SSI Total DiveLog System organizes every aspect of your diving experiences. Over time it will become one of your most valuable possessions.

  • It is your record of training.
  • Helps you plan dives, and track diving experiences.
  • Records your equipment purchases and servicing history.

Getting Certified with SSI’s 1-2-3 Approach

You have the ability to practice review questions with the DVD. If the question is answered incorrectly the DVD will automatically take you to the part of the video that contains the correct information. This new application can also be used by Instructors to support learning during classroom sessions.

We want to make sure you are in good health for diving, so we require that you complete a confidential medical questionnaire. Developed by a committee of noted diving physicians, the questionnaire screens for certain medical conditions. If you have one of these conditions, it will be necessary for you to visit a physician.
