Question- What's the difference between PADI & SSI?

Answer : Very little! Each individual training agency is 100% recognised throughout the world.
The differences between these training organisations are quite small but at the end of the day,
The main differences are...
i) with PADI you have to buy the training manual whereas with SSI the online training manual is included with the course price.
ii) with PADI the skills on the Open Water Course are done in a certain order & if you have trouble with a skill you must persist with the skill untill you get it right before we can move on with other skills. With SSI we can leave the skill that is troubling you, move on with the other skills & then come back & do that skill again later on in the session.
iii) The PADI video is painful to sit through! The SSI video isn't quite as painful but it still smarts!
