Diver Certifications

At Waterworld we have SSI (Scuba Schools International) certified divers authorized to certify divers as Open Water Divers.


What makes our certification different is that we personalize training to take enough time to ensure you are truly comfortable under water with not only the skills, but also the equipment you will use. Our Training Philosophy includes the SSI Diver Diamond which focuses on Knowledge, Skills, Equipment and Experience. The basis of it all, the Open Water Diver course, consists of 3 parts: Academics, Pool Training and Open Water Sessions. Before you get wet you will be asked to complete the Academics portion of the training.


Scuba Schools International academics training materials and online training programs are designed to educate you about open water diving. These materials are available to be downloaded through iTunes and Google Play allowing you to learn at your own pace when it is most convenient for you. You are able to complete the academics portion of the Open Water Diving course when you sign up through the online training program then attend review sessions at the Waterworld dive center.

Download these helpful apps to complete your academic portions.

Keep your education updated with the SSI Everything Apps.

Pool Training

After you are familiar with the academics portion of Open Water Diving it is time to step into the pool. But first your instructor will get you familiar with your ‘second skin’ by helping fit you into a scuba suit. During your SSI pool training you will apply the knowledge you have learned about scuba equipment to operations. Getting you comfortable using this equipment in a controlled environment will prepare you for your first open water session.
