Has it been awhile since your last dive? Are you feeling a bit nervous about the hand-signals or equipment set-up? Then it might be time to refresh your skills with a Scuba Skills Update.
Diving is a technical sport. It takes many hours in the pool, and even more in the ocean, to hone your skills and learn to dive safely. Maintaining proper technique and keeping current with guidelines requires further time in and out of the water. Unfortunately, most divers are unable to dive as often as necessary to maintain those skills, and keep current with dive techniques and etiquette.
Most tend to find themselves going many months, or even years, between their dives. In either case, whether you’re an experienced diver, or a newbie certified open water diver, you should think about a Scuba Skills Update course.
Scuba Schools International (SSI) offers the Scuba Skills Update program for divers looking to refresh their skills. Led by professional divers, the program helps sharpen your skills in the pool, so you can confidently and safely get back in the water.
But why, you ask, should you bother taking a refresher at all? You’ve got the certification card, so why spend the money and time for a skills update? Well, here are a few of the main reasons you might like to jump in on a Scuba Skills Update course.
