SSI continues to invest in its Training Centers by frequently adding new training opportunities for all levels of SSI divers. Today SSI is excited to announce the latest addition to their Recreational Diving program, the SSI Decompression Diving Specialty.
SSI developed this innovative new specialty to bridge the gap between recreational diving and their Extended Range (XR) programs. 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 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 specialty it will adhere more closely to recreational training standards and procedures.
