SSI Navigation Speciality
Want to be confident that you can find your way around underwater? To become a safe and confident diver it is critical to develop an understanding of navigation. You will learn how to navigate with a compass and how to apply natural navigation skills, estimate distances, navigate different search patterns, find your way to marking points and be able to get back to the exit point.
The course covers three elements; academics, pool and open water dives. The academics are completed online using the SSI Online training materials so you can learn at a time convenient to you and at your pace. We then review the academics with you in the Dive Centre. In the pool you will will learn key skills for the course before progressing to your open water dives.
