Diver Training

We train all levels of divers from Ocean Diver through to Advanced Diver and can mentor any one who wants to progress to First Class. We have an active training programme and teach all year round.

Here is a little more information on each of the levels:

First Class Diver

The first Class diver qualification is the highest non-instructional award the BSAC offer. All Assessments are completed on a National Level.
What is a First Class Diver? There are only hundreds of divers that have reached this grade since the formation of BSAC. As opposed to the thousands of divers who that have completed the lower grades. The qualification carries considerable gravitas within the diving community.
