Training

We run a wide range of BSAC qualification courses throughout the year. As a “non for profit” club, our prices are nominally priced to cover costs, encourage new membership, develop divers and increase their diving skills.

Instruction is highly personalised, with small classes, delivered to suite individual needs by qualified instructors. Instruction is supported by comprehensive training materials for further study and future reference.
