I have always used the most up-to-date training techniques and state of the art scuba equipment. - I want you to have fun whilst at the same time, I will make certain you are ready to scuba dive safely by becoming comfortable in the water using the skills and equipment I will show you.

Dive right in now!

On the very first day, you are off to our purpose built, private indoor heated training pool for your first scuba session- Pro-Dive teach you to scuba dive by practising scuba skills that become easier the more times you perform them.

The scuba skills build upon themselves until they become instinctive. This takes time and as Pro-Dive Central Coast has the only purpose built indoor, heated 3 metre deep training pool.

Time is never hurried, nor wasted waiting in line.

You will only need to provide your own transport, four passport-type colour photos and your swimming gear, towels, etc.

We do suggest you purchase your own personal equipment such as mask,snorkel, boots and fins after your five pool sessions, for your final ocean dives.

This is easy using our exclusive No deposit- 12 months interest free options for your purchases. (Cond. apply).

The ELearning is the online theory component of your Open Water course. It will take about 6-7hours to complete so please make sure you leave enough time to complete it before the start of your course. The theory MUST be completed before your course. Please note you will not be certified without this.

This registration alone costs $59, which is included in your course fee. However if you do not complete the course or require a refund for whatever reason, this $59 is non-refundable.
Given this, please ensure you complete any medical you may need before registering for the ELearning.

To register, please click here. This will take you to the SSI registration portal.

On the right you will see a LOGIN/REGISTER button underneath a heading of MYSSI. Please click this.

Here, you need to fill in your details including full name, date of birth, email, home address, language, gender and phone number (see below).

You will also need to select your dive centre so here, please select “Australia” for country and either “NSW-> 2261 CENTRAL COAST -> PRO DIVE CENTRAL COAST” or “NSW -> 2261 KILLARNEY VALE-> PRO DIVE Central Coast”

 

Finally, please make sure you read the terms and conditions before ticking the box indicating you agree with them.

Your login details will now be emailed to you. Please use these to login to the system and complete your registration.

You will need a digital photo of yourself to upload to your profile (see below). This will be the photo that will appear on your certification card.
Please note you cannot begin the ELearning without this photo on your profile.

Prodive Central Coast will get a notification of you registering and will provide you with access to the ELearning. They have to manually do this, so naturally it can only be done during office hours. If this is done during office hours and you do not receive a confirmation email from SSI within 1 hour, please give your dive centre a call Prodive Central Coast 02 4389 3483

Please note that as soon as you create your profile you will have access to the ELearning for Try a Dive, Snorkel Dive, or SCUBA Diver*. This is NOT the correct ELearning. The one you want is Open Water.

*SCUBA Diver is 50% of the Open Water course. If you do begin this, then it will credit to your Open Water ELearning, i.e. if you complete the 3 modules on it, you will have another 3 to go to complete the Open Water ELearning, rather than having to do all 6.
Given this, if it is after hours and you have registered and want to begin, feel free to start the SCUBA Diver program as this will be credited when we link you the following morning to Open Water.
