At what depth do you decompress?

Is SSI as good as padi?
To summarize: Both PADI and SSI offer world-class diving training around the world. They both maintain high standards of practice across the globe. SSI is generally cheaper, so if you are looking for a lower price, you can do your SSI Open Water.
How do you calculate time between dives?
Surface Interval Time (SIT) must be at least 10 minutes between dives. If your SIT is less than 10 minutes, you must consider your second dive as a continuation of the first dive. NAUI recommends a SIT of at least one hour between dives. Use the next greater dive time if your dive is particularly cold or strenuous.
What is a dive table?
Dive tables are used to determine how long you can safely stay under water at a given depth, both for the initial dive and for subsequent dives. To many aspiring scuba divers, Dive Tables are scary. It seems inconceivable that they’d ever understand them, let alone become proficient in using them.

How many numbers are on a PADI open water scuba diver certification card?

Are dive computers replacing dive tables?
For most divers, yes, they have replaced the tables. Dive computers, which have been around since the 1980s, do the same thing as dive tables. They estimate nitrogen absorbed and then tell you maximum allowable underwater time (and lots of other data) on the display.
