SSI Scuba diver course


The SSI Scuba Diver is a course designed for divers which has insufficient time to do the Open Water Course. In short, the SSI Scuba Diver course is actually the first half of the Open Water Course. Under guidance of a Dive Pro, a certified Scuba Diver can dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters.

If you enroll in our Open Water course but you could not finish in time, Blue Label will certify you as a Scuba Diver. You need to, however, meet the criteria of the SSI Scuba Diver Certification.

The minimum criteria is to finish first three sessions in theories, confined water and open water training of the Open Water Course. Upon receive your Scuba Diver Cert, you can then come back to Blue Label to finish your Open Water course in the future.

We believe that everyone deserve to be trained by the best, even from the very start.

We take diving serious but with a smile. We don’t care about quantity but QUALITY!

What do you do and where do we teach you

Your course breaks down into 3 separate parts – the theory sessions, the classroom sessions, and the open water sessions. Upon registration, Blue Label will send you an email containing online materials. It will save time for you to finish it prior to your actual course. Our instructor then conduct a class to reinforce your knowledge in diving, before moving on to the pool sessions.

Acting as a simulator of the open water dives, you will practice diving skills in both shallow and deep section of the pool. We utilize a pool of a private resort, which has a 5m deep section. This clearly enables us to conduct actual scuba diving skills underwater, and narrows the conditional gap of the pool and open sea for you.

On the next day, we will conduct your Open Water training session at nearly islands. In this case, we mainly go the Racha islands south of Phuket, which has clear visibility and nice, sandy bottom for skill training. On this day you will have a half day trip, which consists of 3 dives. Upon finishing your course, you will depart the Racha Island around evening. Under the sunset, you can drink beers with your instructor, all the while start planning about your next diving adventure!
