SSI Science of Diving Specialty Koh Tao

SSI Science of Diving Specialty Koh Tao

What is the Science of Diving Specialty Course?

Do you remember when you first learnt to dive? Do you remember the chart with the balloons and what happens as it goes down? 

This is just a tiny part of Diving Physics, 

Over the period of the Open Water Course, and all other diving courses you were taught you will have been taught a part of what the Science of Diving Specialty covers. 

However, this program provides far more in-depth and detailed information covering all aspects that relate to diving, including physics, physiology, decompression theory, the aquatic environment and diving equipment.

It is required training for most SSI Dive Professional programs, as well as some Extended Range programs, and is a fantastic resource for those considering taking their diving instructor course through any dive agency since the information covered is what all the theory exams are based from.

Over the period of 2 classroom session (which can be done online also) we will cover all the separate topics in a relaxed manner. If you like you can easily join one of our diving sessions around this training by perhaps diving in the morning or the afternoon.
