Scuba Review

Review, Refresh & Update Your Skills and Knowledge

Our Scuba Skills Update provides the perfect opportunity to review and practice important skills you learned in your Open Water Diver program, while under the guidance of an A-1 diving professional.

You have the option to purchase the online digital manual for only $25.  Though not required, it’s a great way to refresh your diving knowledge each time you take a diving vacation to the islands.  And the cool part is that it will be updated for life!  Those who purchase the digital manual and complete the water skills will be issued a digital SSI Scuba Skills Update recognition card.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Your current diving certification does not expire!
