SCUBA COURSE

SCUBA COURSE

PADI VS.  SSI

When you do a dive course, you have a choice to do that with different dive organizations. These organizations have developed their own teaching materials, standards and certifications which their instructors use to conduct the courses. There are quite a few organizations in the world and they all have different philosophies and standards. In general, the differences are not too big and no matter which organization you take a course with, you will use the same kind of equipment and see the same marine life under water.

Truly, the quality of the courses strongly depends on the experience and attitude of your dive instructor and the dive school you train with no matter what organization you should choose to certify with. We are able to offer you courses with the two biggest Dive Organizations in the world; SSI (Scuba Schools International) and PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors).

In terms of diver training there is very little difference between SSI and PADI. They both follow the diving standards set by the Governing body – WRSTC (World Recreational Scuba Training Council) meaning that knowledge and skill requirements are almost the same.

The differences between these two are quite small but at the end of the day, they both offer good and safe courses and produce proper and capable divers. Both organizations have been around for years and they have very high quality teaching materials and high standards. The biggest difference is the marketing departments.

With such great diversity in dive sites and varying under water conditions, we must have a certain flexibility to provide you – our guest – with the highest possible training and safety standards.

With SSI you can choose to either borrow or purchase your manuals. In other words, you don’t have to buy the materials. PADI requires that you purchase the materials
