SSI Equipment Specialist Course
Don’t miss a dive due to a scuba gear issue. Whether it’s a blown o-ring, regulator problem, wetsuit tear or a broken fin strap, you can learn how to manage basic scuba equipment adjustments.
As a SSI Equipment Specialist, you are prepared for the basic scuba equipment maintenance, care and adjustments you’ll encounter every day. In addition, you’ll learn interesting background information about how your gear works, how it’s repair and other information that helps you with your equipment investment.
As a scuba diver, you already know that diving is an equipment-intensive activity. From accessories such as dive lights and underwater cameras, to essential gear like exposure suits, cylinders and regulators, there’s a lot to wrap your head around.
Unfortunately, many divers are reluctant to learn more about their equipment because they feel they’re not ‘mechanically inclined’. But here’s the good news: you don’t need a degree in engineering to understand how scuba equipment works; the Equipment Specialist Touch will help you to understand how (and why) certain pieces of scuba equipment work.
The SSI Equipment Specialist Touch is a fully interactive and comprehensive digital product for iOS and Android tablet devices. This valuable tool provides a beautifully immersive look into scuba equipment through short video clips and 3D rotating images to help you get a more realistic insight into how things work.
Whether you plan to invest in your own gear, or just want to learn a bit more about it in general, the SSI Equipment Specialist Touch will teach the benefits of owning your own equipment, how to choose it and apply it best across various scenarios, and considerations on care after you’ve invested in your equipment.
The SSI Equipment Specialist Touch is available as part of the SSI Equipment Specialist course. As part of this course you’ll learn about routine care and maintenance as well as scuba equipment storage recommendations. Your instructor will show you how to overcome some common equipment problems and offer equipment configuration suggestions. You may even get to jump into the water to try new or unfamiliar equipment for the first time with the assistance of a SSI Pro.
