How long will it take?

SSI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you. We generally conduct our courses over a relaxed 4 days schedule, with the first 2 days spent practicing in the pool and class, with the last 2 days conducting your Open Water Training Dives.

Your underwater adventure can begin in the comfort of your own home with the new SSI online learning program. The SSI Open Water Diver Course online provides the knowledge development portion you need. This will reduce class time and maximize dive time and also allow you to complete the course in as little as three days.
