Sometimes plans change and we understand that. If you are unable to complete your Open Water Diver program, you can credit your learning towards other certifications and upgrade at any time. As an SSI Referral Diver, you will be able to dive up to 5 meters deep in confined waters with a buddy. Typically as a Referral Diver, you will have completed the Open Water Diver academic and pool/confined water sessions at your local training center and plan to do your open water training dives elsewhere. Become an Open Water Diver by completing the four open water training dives.
