SCUBA SKILLS UPDATE
A Scuba Skills Update provides you with the opportunity to review and practice necessary scuba skills that you learned in your original Open Water Diver program under the guidance of an SSI Dive Professional.

The SSI Speciality courses offer you a new aspect to your diving. From Night diving, Deep diving and Nitrox to more technical and/or theoretical courses.

The list of Speciality programmes available is long, so ask your instructor or any of us in the shop with regards to your interests.
React Right is SSI's emergency training program, consisting of the following basic components: Primary Assessment, First Aid & CPR Skills, Primary Stabilisation Techniques, and includes two optional components: Oxygen Administration in Diving Emergencies and Automated External Defibrillation Basics. Students who complete this program earn the SSI React Right speciality certification.
DIVER STRESS & RESCUE
Stress is a major cause of diving accidents and negatively impacts rescue situations. This program teaches you the skills and knowledge required to recognise and deal with stress, prevent accidents and properly deal with emergency situations encountered by divers. You will earn the SSI Diver Stress and Rescue Speciality certification after completing this program.
This isn't all of it, but certainly the most popular.
