Decompression Diving

Decompression Diving-The SSI Decompression Diving Specialty is the perfect opportunity for recreational divers to get a small taste of what more advanced diving is like without having to commit to going entirely technical right off the bat.

Often, the difference between recreational equipment and a more technical set-up seems intimidating and overwhelming to the standard dive customer. However, the new Decompression Diving Specialty is the perfect way to slowly introduce divers to the excitement and adventure offered by the Extended Range (XR) programs.

The Decompression Diving Specialty provides SSI divers with the training necessary to independently plan and conduct decompression dives using either traditional recreational equipment or introducing them to using a sidemount system. This program will take divers to a maximum depth of 40 meters with a maximum accumulated decompression time of 15 minutes. As the program is a recreational speciality it will adhere more closely to recreational training standards and procedures.

  • Minimum Age: 16
  • Certification Prerequisites: Deep Diving
  • Academic Sessions: Online learning
  • Pool/Confined Water Sessions: 1
  • Open Water Dives: 3
  • Suggested Duration: 18 - 20 hours

You will be sent an e-mail allowing access to the SSI online academics you can use a computer or any digital device to login, update your profile and start the learning process. The multimedia academics with videos and multiple-choice questions keep learning fun and ensure you are perfectly prepared for your water sessions. 

Some specialities have no dives so classroom sessions will be scheduled to suit your calendar. We will teach you everything there is to know to dive safely and comfortably in your chosen subject area.

All sessions are followed by thorough debriefing and discussion about your performance helping you learn. On successful completion, you will be issued with a certificate of completion and a digital recognition rating (via MySSI App).

  • All Pool fees are included (if required) but entry to open water sites is not included

This course teaches you to complete Decompression Dives using your computer functions, it is important to know you have the right computer.
