Course Description:

The SSI Stress & Rescue Program is one of the most important Recreational Diver Programs available. This program will help develop your skills as a diver and raise your awareness of your environment. It helps you to be more able to recognize signs of stress, ahead of time, to prevent an issue in water. And then of course, if you find yourself in a “situation” this program helps you with new tools to help and resolve issues.


Due to the level of skills required for this course, it is required for divers to own their own dive gear. A diver should be well established and comfortable with dive skills, so they are able to now shift their focus to the needs of other divers.
