SSI Twinset Specialty Course Launched!

SSI (Scuba Schools International) launches signature course for twinset bound divers

Koh Tao, Thailand

Big Blue Tech recently certified new SSI Twinset Specialty divers during a combined course with a Nitrox, Wreck and Deep specialty for Divemaster interns by SSI TXR Instructor Helen Artal over a 4 day course on Koh Tao Island off the coast of Thailand.

The SSI Twinset specialty is a signature course written by Helen Artal and approved by SSI. The course was launched in the new year and this is the first time it has been conducted.

The SSI Twinset Specialty is about building confidence and skill perfection in a twinset which is the broad term for two cylinders connected by tank bands and a manifold most commonly used in technical and cave diving applications.

The course was also combined with Nitrox, Deep and Wreck diving specialties to enhance the students knowledge of the application of twinset diving.

The students were exposed to wrecks in the 30-40m range while comfortably diving on 29% nitrox in their twinsets which gave them ample bottom time and breathing gas.
