SSI Science of Diving Course

Scuba Diving courses: The SSI Science of Diving course to get more knowledgeable.

the SSI Science of Diving course If the SSI Science of Diving course sounds boring because you are on holiday and the last thing you want to be in, is in the classroom, you might be amazed how this course is not only exciting, but you will also get a lot of fun!

Just for example: Do you know when a tank (cylinder) is empty? It depends on the external pressure surrounding the tank (cylinder)!

OK, but what does it mean for you as a diver?
Imagine you get lost at 40 meters (130 feet) of depth and you run out of gas. Instead of going up like crazy, just go up 5 meters (15 feet), and you will be able to get one breath or even a second one, and so on as you go up during your, now, less crazy emergency ascent.

Why? Because of the surrounding pressure decreasing as you are ascending, the gas in your tank expands, giving you the one or two breathe necessary not to pass out with a safer ascending speed rate.
This is why with SSI during your emergency ascent you keep your second stage in your mouth.

This is not the least! Because during the Science of Diving course, you will learn a lot about physiology, scuba gear, DCS, nitrogen, bubbles, decompression theory and much more. In the end, you will be able to have your diving tricks and tips.
