Training Philosophy

All SSI Training Programs are based on the Diver Diamond Methodology. This is what helps separate SSI training from other scuba certification The Diver Diamond Methodology focuses on the 4 ingredient required to become a highly qualified diver; Knowledge, Skills, Equipment, and Experience.

Knowledge

Knowledge replaces fears and fantasies with correct information. The SSI Home Study Total Teaching System (Full color Manual, DVD and Study Guide) will teach you certain safety rules and your instructor will relate that information in a “land value” to “water value” format with an interactive classroom presentation.

Skills

There are only two ways that people learn — either shock or repetition. Shock is not a good way to learn anything, especially diving. SSI’s signature water training method is “Comfort though Repetition.” It is important to take the time to develop the skills necessary for you to become a safe and comfortable diver.

Equipment

The safest way for anyone to become a diver is in their own high-quality, personally fitted Total Diving System. Being familiar with your equipment increases your ability and confidence using life support equipment. During your training, you will learn several equipment configurations which will enable you to make the best possible choice for your own Total Diving System.

Experience

While training develops knowledge and skills, the only way to get experience is to go diving. This is why SSI encourages more open water dives during training instead of just the minimum number of dives as required by industry standards. The more you dive, the more you will enjoy the sport. So get out there, explore new worlds, meet new friends and see why diving with SSI stands for “The Ultimate Dive Experience”!
