Underwater Navigator

Have you ever asked  yourself, "How does my instructor manage to find the way back to the exit point or to the boat?"

If so, the NAVIGATION Program is what you need to learn this skill for yourself. 

The NAVIGATION Program will teach you to navigate with a compass and how to apply natural navigation skills. You will also learn to estimate distances, navigate different search patterns, find your way to different marking points, and be able to get back to the exit point at any time.

If you want to know more about NAVIGATION, you can buy the manual or the DVD even without  signing up for the course. ......

NAVIGATION SPECIALTY COURSE Content:

The primary goal of any SSI Specialty course is to teach you important skills in a fun environment. All courses are taught using home study, short academic sessions, and in-water training. 

Combine other specialties while taking the NAVIGATION course! NIGHT/LIMITED VISIBILITY or SEARCH AND RECOVERY are great add ons - both courses put your navigation skills to the test. The possibilities are limitless!
