SPORT DIVER EQUIVALENCES FROM DIVE TRAINING AGENCIES, PADI, SSI AND SDI
While each dive training organization strives to produce great divers, sometimes we use different terminology to say the same thing. Understanding equivalent ratings will allow you to see where your certification lines up with other organizations. In addition, it will allow you to know if you meet the prerequisites for a course if you hold a certification with one dive training organization then take a subsequent course with another.
