LEARN TO DIVE – SCUBA SKILLS UPDATE
Skills protocol change, diving equipment also changes, hence the need to keep up to speed. Certification agencies recommend that divers who haven’t dived within the last 12 months undertake an update course.
Our certifications are done through Scuba Schools International, a member of the WRSTC (World Recreational Scuba Training Council). If you are not confident that your certification card is internationally recognised or your training agency no longer exists, you may wish to have an SSI Certification card issued to you following the completion of your training.
The update program takes about half a day.
