A frequently asked question from people thinking about joining our club is 'how long will it take me to become qualified?'
Training starts with basic a swimming assessment.
(we have had trainees who had just learnt to swim and now are qualified divers).
Then you move onto snorkel work this is introduction to basic equipment & snorkel equipment.
Then onto the good stuff Scuba training in the pool.
When completed its off to the big blue yonder for open water training.
See pool training cards...
Lectures are run for the theoretical side of training usually 1 hour before pool training
This will involve the Branch Diving Officer (BDO) & Regional Coach (RC) checking over your training records / log books and qualifications, and deciding what training maybe required for your crossover to a SSAC qualification.
