SSI's Signature Water Training Method is the Difference
There are only 2 ways people learn – shock and repetition. Shock is not a good way to learn anything, especially freediving. That leaves repetition. Do you remember when your mum or dad said, “practice makes perfect?” Well they were right and that’s exactly how we will teach you to freedive. And the only way to do that is for you to become truly comfortable with your knowledge, skills and equipment. We call that the Diver Diamond.
The Diver Diamond is the cornerstone for all SSI education programs. It emphasizes the 4 ingredients required to become a diver, instead of just learning to dive: proper knowledge, proper skills, proper equipment and proper experience. The SSI Diver Diamond sets the foundation for “The Ultimate Diving Experience.”
Snorkel Safari Western Melbourne freediving instructors make learning come alive with personalised instruction that will put your skills to the test in reality-based training. Our signature water training method is known as, “Comfort through Repetition.” By practicing each skill you’ve learned throughout each level of your training, your actions become conditioned responses—second nature! SSI training ensures you retain what you’ve learned, while you continue to learn more. As a result, you will become a confident and comfortable freediver.
When you finish your training and become a certified SSI freediver, you’ll truly be ready to begin the adventure of your dreams!
