Can I switch from PADI to SSI?
To become SSI certified as with PADI, you can first do an Open Water Certification followed by the SSI Advanced Certification, whenever you are ready to continue your learning. The big difference between PADI and SSI is the PADI courses offer a lot less flexibility during the classes.
What does SSI stand for scuba?
The abbreviation SSI stands for Scuba Schools International. SSI is the world’s largest store based training agency. SSI professionals must be affiliated with a dive center. That means that SSI instructors can not teach as independent. SSI is being more and more represented all over the world.
