Skills Development Courses

In BSAC training many of the skills such as rescue and Nitrox are integrated into the diver grades but there are lots of extra skills development courses you can do. Courses we run in-house every year include:

Dry suit training (on demand)
Dive planning and management
Twinset and Accelerated decompression procedures
Compressor Operator and Mixed gas blender/nitrox gas blender
Practical rescue management
Oxygen administration
Chartwork and position fixing
First Aid for Divers
Lifesaver and Advanced Lifesaver

Instructor training

We encourage our experienced Sports Divers to do a weekend BSAC Instructor Foundation Course. If you want to become an instructor it is the first step on the journey. Even if you don’t want to become an active instructor it is a valuable way to get your own skills in tip top shape.

Marine Life Identification with Seasearch

All members are encouraged to become qualified in Marine Life Identification with Seasearch. This is a project for volunteer sports divers who have an interest in what they’re seeing underwater, want to learn more and want to help protect the marine environment around the coasts of Britain and Ireland. For the next course see the dive programme.
