We provide all of the materials you will need for the SSI Dive Guide plus the SSI Science of Diving.   Our relaxed approach means that there is no time limit to complete the course.  The program can be completed in as little as 4 weeks, but we recommend you take at least 6 weeks to 8 weeks.  As there is no pressure to finish, you can take as long as you wish, but 2 to 3 months is better to earn all your diving certifications on Koh Tao
