Hi sorry if this has been done to death, nothing was coming up when I tried to search. \
I completed my PADI open water course almost 10 years ago in Egypt, great fun. Then dived in Malta the following year. However since then I haven\'t dived!\
Anyway to the point.. we are going to Turkey in July and both my husband and I would like to dive. My husband has no experience of diving, so we looked into local to home courses and found somewhere offering PADI. At the same time I contacted the dive centre in Turkey next to our hotel and they said that they are PADI/SSI/CMAS trained instructors and run the SSI course out there and quoted a much cheaper price. Now we dont know whether husband should do PADI at home prior to going or the SSI once on holiday. \
I\'d never heard of SSI prior to this so unsure how recognised it is (however Im hardly up to date in the diving world!) \
Please can you advise whether my husband would be able to use this training else where in different countries etc?\
Ps, don\'t worry Im doing a refresher course before we go! \
Many thanks x
