SSI Advanced Open Water Diver is the next recognition rating on the path to becoming an SSI Master Diver.
You don’t have to be “advanced” to work toward this rating – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your SSI Open Water Diver certification. Completing the specialties and number of dives required for this rating helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through completing four different specialties. You’ll log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
After completing the four SSI Specialty programs that interest you, as well as 24 logged dives, you will automatically receive this recognition rating, along with your SSI Specialty program certifications.
