SSI Scuba Diver
The SSI Scuba Diver is a great entry into the world of certified divers. The Scuba Diver allows you dive together with a professional up to 12m depth, takes approximately one and a half to two days and will not expire unlike the shorter (one day) SSI Basic Diver.
During this course you will learn the basic principals and rules of scuba diving, the equipment and how to use it, as well as valuable skills to be able to manage a variety of situations underwater.
This course contains three theory modules, three confined water sessions and 2 open water dives. Since the Scuba Diver is the first half of the SSI Open Water Diver Course it can be credited towards the SSI Open Water Diver certification.
