BSAC training is respected all over the world for being robust, person-centred and for developing excellent self-reliant scuba divers. Diving skills are taught progressively, with each new experience built upon, step-by-step.

BSAC Training is delivered by fully-qualified BSAC instructors and is a cost-effective way to train.




There are five internationally-recognised BSAC diver grades, from the entry level Ocean Diver through to our highest grade, First Class Diver.

The Diver Training Programme is regularly updated and improved to keep pace with developments in equipment and diving knowledge. The programme is designed to build confidence and self-reliance. Diving skills are taught progressively so that each new experience is built upon step by step. Training is primarily delivered by our club through qualified instructors over a series of weekly evening sessions and weekend open water training, with the opportunity for regular diving to hone your skills.

The most common levels are Ocean Diver, Sports Diver and Dive Leader. You can find out a bit more about these qualifications in our site, or take a look at the BSAC diver progression chart:
