Azure works in affiliation with SSI (Scuba Schools International), one of the few diver training agencies that qualified for a Global ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Certification and that is represented in over 100 countries, has over 2,500 international locations and provides training materials in more than 30 languages.
SSI is the only training agency that requires its dive professionals to affiliate with an authorized dive centre. SSI dive centres must adhere to the SSI Dealer & Training Standards and are supervized through the MAP (Monitor’s Assessment Procedures) quality assurance programme. In addition, all training standards either meet or exceed the ISO or RSTC (Recreational Scuba Training Council) standards.
Azure’s training programmes are supported by free online training, colourful manuals and DVDs, academic and practical water sessions, all designed around the needs of an individual student, so that each student can learn at their own pace and use training media and materials that they are most comfortable with.
Azure’s training philosophy is based on the SSI Diver Diamond Methodology, which focuses on the proper knowledge, skills, equipment, and experience required to become a highly qualified diver.
