You will become an international certified scuba diver once you complete this SSI course that runs over three days. Your qualified and experienced instructors will lead you through each stage of the course - from theory to practise sessions to diving in the ocean!
Your course begins with the integral theory component, you will complete this at the dive store. Your instructor will go over each section and explain the physics and physiology of diving so you have a complete understanding of how diving will affect you.
Day two starts in the training pool, this is where you'll learn about all the scuba equipment and become comfortable underwater while you are wearing it. You will practice your skills in the pool over and over so you become confident and feel safe. This is in preparation for your open water dives at the beautiful Magnetic Island. After your lunch break, you will complete your first ocean dive. You will get a chance to dive the second time. You will go through your skills again and master them.
Day three is your final day, you will head into the ocean for your last 2 ocean dives. This is where you will complete the last few skills. There will be a lot of time to relax and enjoy these diving sites as you have done most of the work. Upon successful completion of all components you will receive your SSI accreditation which allows you to scuba dive around the world and buy scuba diving equipment.
