Poster_DiverDiamondThe SSI Training Philosophy

Each of our Training Programs is based on our Diver Diamond Methodology, which focuses on the proper knowledge, skills, equipment, and experience required in becoming a highly qualified diver.


Knowledge replaces fears and fantasies with correct information. The SSI Home Study Total Teaching System (Full color Manual, DVD and Study Guide) will teach you certain safety rules and your instructor will relate that information in a “land value” to “water value” format with an interactive classroom presentation.


There are only two ways that people learn — either shock or repetition. Shock is not a good way to learn anything, especially diving. SSI’s signature water training method is “Comfort though Repetition.” It is important to take the time to develop the skills necessary for you to become a safe and comfortable diver.


The safest way for anyone to become a diver is in their own high-quality, personally fitted Total Diving System. Being familiar with your equipment increases your ability and confidence using life support equipment. During your training, you will learn several equipment configurations which will enable you to make the best possible choice for your own Total Diving System.


While training develops knowledge and skills, the only way to get experience is to go diving. This is why SSI encourages more open water dives during training instead of just the minimum number of dives as required by industry standards. The more you dive, the more you will enjoy the sport. So get out there, explore new worlds, meet new friends and see why diving with SSI stands for “The Ultimate Dive Experience”!
