    If I do an adventure dive, for example, for the night dive. Should I be charged half of the price of the full certification?

    The certification requires two dives, or should I pay less since the adventure dive has no exam and I’ll have to pay for the exam later ?

    Part of the cost of the full certification is the certification card.
    So, less than half the full price would be reasonable, if you have an instructor with you.

    There is no exam, just a quiz to discuss with the instructor.

    If you don't have an instructor with you, I'd try and negotiate zero price, arguing that they are providing little of value (value would be the certification, and the instructor in the water with you) that you can't just get by reading on your own.

    Well I just went to discuss and it seems it was a genuine mistake. They refunded me the part they would pay SSI for the full certification.

    Thanks
