Academic sessions : Include classes, workshops led by a trainer and other interactive activities. They are designed to apply the knowledge acquired in digital learning in a practical and real environment.
Practical application sessions : This is the final component of your training, where you will further develop the skills and experience necessary as a dive professional. You will develop and be assessed for your ability to conduct both pool and ocean training sessions, evaluate students, and promote SSI teaching and business philosophies for the benefit of the entire diving industry.
