7.It is easy to sign up for your next course.

Once you have found a course or event that captures your interest, a convenient "register" option is available directly on the specific course information page. This not only allows you to sign up right away but also allows the Training Center an automated sign-up system to drive business straight to their store. As soon as you sign up for a course, that Training Center will receive a message through their SSI dashboard, streamlining the entire registration process.

8.You can check out fun dive events and tours.

Besides searching and signing up for certification courses, you can explore a wide range of Training Center-sponsored events, including travel and tours. Check out Blue Oceans events like beach clean-ups, plus equipment services, and social events like dive center BBQs and dive club meetings. 

The SSI Course & Event Calendar is your gateway to living an active life underwater and staying involved with divers in your community.

9.It empowers SSI Training Centers.

Divers are not the only ones who will significantly benefit from this new SSI tool. All SSI Training Centers can now share their courses and event schedules directly with customers through the share button, fostering enhanced communication and community involvement. 

Stay connected to your customer base with real-time course and event sharing and see your customer engagement grow.

The SSI Course & Event Calendar represents a significant leap forward in functionality and positive user experience on the SSI website. We believe this tool will significantly enhance engagement and satisfaction among SSI and non-SSI divers, making dive planning more accessible and enjoyable.

As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, we are dedicated to refining this developing diver tool with ongoing bug fixes and optimizations. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we encourage you to use the Feedback button to share your thoughts and suggestions.
