Digital Learning & Academics
SSI has mastered the use of digital technology to make your learning experience easy.
You can start by studying the academics anytime, anywhere at your own convenience and your selected Training Center will schedule your review and in-water training sessions.
During the pool/confined water training, your SSI Instructor will teach you all the necessary skills in a controlled environment until you are comfortable and ready to go to the open water. During the open water training dives, you will apply your knowledge and repeat the skills in a real-world environment under the supervision of your Instructor.
Once you have completed all required training sessions, final exam and open water training dives, your SSI Training Center will issue your digital certification card which will show up instantly on your MySSI App.
We congratulate you on your accomplishment and welcome you to SSI’s global diving community.
