Scuba Schools International to Conduct Dive Programs in Dhivehi

Scuba Schools International has announced to conduct programs in Dhivehi to support training and certification of Maldivian divers.

Scuba Schools International (SSI) has announced to conduct dive programs in Dhivehi to support training and certification of Maldivian divers. With the recently updated government rule that requires all fishermen and anyone else who scuba dives for work to have a diving certification, SSI is supporting the SSI dive centers and instructors in the Maldives.

The Open Water Diver course is the starter course for anyone who wants to learn scuba diving. The course trains the student to a level where they will have skills enough to dive autonomously with another certified diver. SSI has had their Open Water Diver course translated to Dhivehi since 2015. Furthermore, this is the first time that an internationally recognised diver certification program has been translated into Dhivehi.

SSI is now working on expanding the range of other dive course materials and forms that are available in Dhivehi. The Deep Diver course and Advanced Adventurer program are available for those seeking to dive deeper than the Open Water limits and gain more experience. SSI offers a wide range of different SSI dive courses beyond the Open Water Diver course.
