Scuba Dive Agency Crossover CMAS, PADI, SSI

CMAS / SSI / SAA / BSAC – PADI Course Crossover

If you are a BSAC, CMAS, SSI scuba diver then we believe that you are very well trained. The BSAC (British Sub Aqua Club) training is superb and highly regarded in scuba diving. To become a PADI diver is easy to crossover from BSAC and allows you to dive with the highest certifying and most widely recognized scuba governing and certifying body. We highly respect BSAC divers and their techniques but if you are wishing to turn professional diver then generally you’ll find that you are much more employable if a PADI professional – merely due to being a more recognized body.

Mermaids Dive Center Pattaya, Thailand hold CMAS, SSI and many other dive agencies training in the same regard. To cross over to PADI diving from any of these scuba certifying bodies is easy. Simply the next higher course is taken by PADI and then the dive agency crossover is made.

Below shows the BSAC, CMAS, SSI, and SAA diver courses and the scuba education levels that you can cross over to the equivalent PADI diving courses. Please contact Mermaids dive centre if you are unsure of the level to crossover to.
