XR Scuba Skills Update

by SSI
Type: Training

A "normal" Scuba Skills Update provides you with the opportunity to review and practice the necessary scuba skills that you learned in your original Open Water Diver program under the guidance of an SSI Dive Professional. This got us thinking! What about XR?! With our busy lives and limited resources these days, it's quite hard to keep tech diving skills up to the high standards required for doing the bigger dives. Consequently, we have decided to offer a package to give you the chance to spend a full day with a suitably qualified tech instructor to run over some of the skills. Which skills will you cover? Stage handling? Twinset valve shutdowns? Diluent Flushes? Well, that's up to you and your instructor to discuss and agree on the scope for the session.

Once agreed, you will have a briefing before going into the open water location, and running through the skills. Our instructors will then be able to help you correct any errors and resolve any difficulties. All sessions are followed by a thorough debriefing and discussion about your performance helping you learn. On successful completion, you can be issued with a digital recognition rating (via MySSI App) if you so wish.  

This session is offered on any equipment configuration - backmount, sidemount, CCR or SCR the choice is yours. 

As with all Divemaster Scuba XR Programs

  • We can rent your kit but the benefit from this session comes from using your own equipment.
