This scuba diving resource makes a bold statement for recreational scuba divers and SSI Dive Leaders alike. SSI Science of Diving Student manual is a full-color, 280 page manual with comprehensive content and stunning graphics that provides an in-depth study into the disciplines of scuba diving.

SSI’s Science of Diving is the knowledge to mentally prepare scuba divers for all types of diving experiences and it is mandatory for SSI Dive Professional Courses. The information presented in this manual gives divers the knowledge they seek about how depth and time can affect the body. The manual provides a detailed look into diving physics and physiology, decompression theory, the components of the Total Diving System and the aquatic environment.

The SSI Science of Diving Course with Aloha Diving in Phuket

Earning your Open Water Diver certification opens up a new underwater world, filled with opportunities to learn about physics, physiology and chemistry, and how they affect the human body while scuba diving. Your education does not have to end with your entry-level certification. The training provided in the SSI Science of Diving program increases your understanding of these topics, and provides you with additional information about decompression theory, and the components of your Total Diving System and its accessories. Good divers are always learning. Our goal is to improve your knowledge of the aquatic environment and the sport of recreational scuba diving, and to ensure that you enjoy every aspect of your diving experience. It is required training for most SSI Dive Professional programs, as well as some Extended Range programs. You will earn the SSI Science of Diving Specialty certification after completing this program.

The Physics

As humans, we are physically adapted to the natural land environment, which means that the “physics” of day-to-day living is instinctive. The effects of the underwater environment on the human body as well as the equipment used require the application of physics.

The Physiology

No other sport requires such an in-depth knowledge of how your body functions, because no other sport puts you in such a completely different environment. Under water, you cannot breathe without scuba equipment and your body goes through unseen changes.

Decompression Theory

Physics and Physiology can be reduced to three simple things: how depth, time, and rate of ascent can affect the body. Decompression theory is those limitations stated in dive tables and computers.

The Total Diving System

Equipment is an important part of any sport, it is the life support system in diving. This section deals with an in-depth look at that equipment.

The Aquatic Environment

The study of water and water movement is called “scuba oceanography.” The study of water creatures is called “aquatic life” for both ocean and fresh water inhabitants. The manual teaches divers all about both types of water and their inhabitants.

REVIEWS FROM OUR SCIENCE OF DIVING COURSE PARTICIPANTS

Amazing diving in Phuket! Small group, no more than 15 people. Simon had great communication and very responsive from first point of contact. Many personal touches in customer service. As I was diving solo and was fairly new, I was assigned a dive master, Marc, to dive one on one with. Mark was very patient and educational along the way. I highly recommend this group. They are more concerned with enjoying the dive and customer service rather than overcrowding and rushing through to maximize their earning potential. They also were conscious of my vegetarian diet and were able to accommodate when the included lunch was served. They will not disappoint!read more

First time to Phuket and decided to do my open water course. There are so many diving schools in Phuket and spoilt for choice but very glad I had chosen Aloha! My instructor was Marc. He is a very experienced, patient and knowledgeable instructor who gave me a lot of diving tips and assurance and always ensured safety first. Even though it was a course with exams involved, it didn't feel stressful and instead it was a relaxing and leisure experience for me. I knew I was in good hands. Thank you Marc, Alice and Simon for the warm hospitality and laughter on board. No regret spending a bulk of my holiday on diving as it was the highlight and most enjoyable activity of my trip. Beautiful dive sites, fun and friendly crews and fellow divers. Will definitely be back for fun dives in the future! Thank you for the beautifully taken pictures too! Great to have them as my memories. Happy to return home as a certified Open Water Diver with Aloha and the journey of the beautiful underwater begins!read more
