Welcome to the SSI Digital University


For so many years diving lessons were restricted to books and classroom. The digital world that we live in has changed that. By downloading the MySSI App you'll have access to comprehensive content at your convenience. You can read the content, watch the videos, complete the quizzes at anytime and anywhere, online or offline.

Complete your online training now and finish your scuba diving course later in your next holidays. You don't need to get to your diving destination to read the book or watch videos and spend hours in the classroom. By completing the online training before your arrival you will make the most out of your days in this island paradise.

We have a variety of courses from beginners to professionals. By registering with SSI Gili Pirates Dive center, you get complete access to the SSI digital programs. You’ll find the programs easy and comprehensive, with first-rate videos, illustrations, animations and photos that improve learning retention.

The programs link physics and physiology to why and how equipment plays an important role in a new diver’s comfort and confidence underwater. They also address the main reason you go diving — to have fun!

To prepare for class, simply read the text, watch the associated videos and answer the review questions at the end of each section. This will be the basis of your review sessions before going in the water.
