SSI has over 40 years of experience with more than 3000 Dive Centers worldwide in 110 countries, and programs available in over 30 languages. Now they would like to take you on a journey of discovery, to an area of diving which was once perhaps unfamiliar, yet which offers a whole different way of diving compared to scuba and all it entails.
From clear lakes to warm, tropical oceans; Freediving offers something for everyone. Immerse yourself in the center of exhilarating action, or settle into the calm and peaceful rhythms of the sea. Advance from a mere spectator to an integrated element of one of nature’s most magnificent environments, on the pathway to a journey unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before!
SSI’s Freediving programs are designed and built by the world’s top Freediving athletes, ensuring they are of the highest quality. The instructional programs teach you about specific breathing techniques, the mechanics of Freediving and the proper choice of equipment, all designed to elevate your skill, comfort, and overall experience.
Freediving centers all over the world provide many opportunities for learning and training. To begin your journey, you can start with the basics such as ‘Try Freediving’ or enroll in a Freediving Basic course. As you progress, be sure to check out one of the many Freediving specialties such as Night, Wreck, Deep, Photo and more, or choose the more competitive pathway with three individual Freediving Levels.
With Level 1 you will reach 10 meters (33 ft), learning proper breathing techniques and familiarizing yourself with diaphragm breathing. You will learn how to be more efficient with breath-holding, gain better respiration and muscle flexibility and learn new skills to take your Freediving to the next level. Level 2 reaches 20 meters (66 ft) where you will gain further knowledge of the mammalian diving reflex as well as advanced equalization techniques and Level 3 goes even further, accomplishing 30 meters (99 ft). From Levels 1 to 3, each course teaches you how to progressively increase your depth and comfort through knowledge, skills, equipment and experience. Dedicated Freediving Specialties representing different disciplines such as Monofin, Free Immersion, Variable Weight, Training Tables and many more, comprise this complete system. Once you become certified in Freediving Level 2, you will be qualified to attend a Freediving Instructor Training Course and start sharing your new passion with others. From there you can easily upgrade to higher levels by growing your Freediving experience. Dive Professionals from other agencies are welcome as well, making use of SSI’s effortless Crossover Programs.
SSI has effectively mastered the use of technology to strengthen the learning experience, anytime, anywhere. Everything you need is either online at diveSSI.com or you can download the courses directly to your Smartphone or tablet via the DiveSSI app available for both iOS and Android. The app is an all-in-one tool which gives you access to Digital Training Materials, a Digital Logbook and Digital Certifications; it’s also free.
