Can I do the course online before I arrive on the island?
Sure, you can prepare and read the theory online before you arrive. Just let us know if this is what you’d like to do and we will help you with receiving the theory package as part of the React Right (SSI) course.
PADI does not include the eLearning automatically into the course. Should you be interested in PADI eLearning it is best to get in touch with us beforehand.
How long will my certification last?
A First Aid and CPR certificate in a diving context is good for two years (24 months) and should then be updated.
What’s the difference between PADI and SSI?
The two major training agencies in the world are PADI and SS (and CMAS if you are looking at diving from a French or German perspective). But is there a big difference or is one better than the other?
Instructors of all agencies will teach you how to be a skilled diver, as there is a certain skill set that every diver needs to have. Therefore, all diving agencies follow a legal framework laid down by the World Recreational Scuba Diving Council. The training agencies also accept each other; hence you could do one course with the one and other courses with another agency.
The main difference is in the theoretical education, requirements and costs (in case you are planning to opt for an eLearning option). And of course, much comes down to personal preferences and other factors such as the teaching skills of your instructor and the conditions of the water.
SSI is app based and allows more flexibility in teaching methods and a more personalized approach in teaching. Therefore, we have chosen SSI as our primary teaching agency. Should you prefer a PADI course, just let us know in the booking – this is also absolutely no problem.
The React Right Course with SSI is counted as a speciality and it is recognized the same way as the Emergency First Response Course.
Why should I choose Divine Divers?
We love what we do and we do it well! We have been in the game for over 10 years as Divine Divers on Gili Meno. Generally, our main differentiator is our personal approach – and of course our location at the most perfect sunset point on the island. What better way is there to end the perfect diving day where the sky meets the ocean. Apart from that our groups are small and our instructors hand chosen for their personality and excellent teaching records. We have great and up to date training facilities and safety is our primary concern; our equipment is in excellent order and of course regularly maintained. We are committed to offering first-class service and high-quality dive courses. We are offering both PADI and SSI courses and we are collaborating with instructor development centers for both agencies in case you fall in love with diving and the island and would like to just stay and live here. You would not be the first one ?.
