Diver Training

BSAC Training Overview

From beginner to experienced scuba diver, BSAC provides a full training programme that enables divers to progress through a framework of qualifications at their own pace. There are five internationally-recognised BSAC diver grades, from the entry level Ocean Diver through to our highest grade, First Class Diver

BSAC Diver Grades

BSAC has been training people to dive since the early 1950s.

During this time the Diver Training Programme has been regularly updated and improved to keep pace with developments in equipment and diving knowledge. The programme is designed to build confidence and self-reliance, whilst keeping safety uppermost.

Diving skills are taught progressively so that each new experience is built upon step by step. Following basic training in the safety of a swimming pool or protected area, students soon complete their first open water dives to achieve Ocean Diver certification.

This progression continues to Sports Diver and beyond, where open water skills and techniques are further developed and experience gained.

All diver training courses are delivered at the club, by our qualified volunteer instructors over a series of weekly evening sessions and weekend open water training, with the opportunity for regular diving to hone your skills. You can also complete your training over a shorter period of time through a BSAC centre.

With BSAC, the choice is yours – this is YOUR diving journey and we are with you every step of the way.
