Description This course builds on the foundation of skills that you learned on your BSAC Ocean Diver or PADI Open water course and develops the skills and attitudes required for you to start safely and confidently leading dives with other divers of a similar level.
Minimum Requirements Must hold an entry level qualification, such as BSAC Ocean diver, or PADI Open water diver. Must pass BSAC Medical, and be over 14 years of age. You should have a BSAC Qualification Record Book.
Course Content One lesson in the pool followed by five lessons in the sea in the marine reserve, five theory lectures, some reading, and final exam. If you are already taking a Sports diver course with a UK BSAC branch you can complete just those sessions that you required with us.
You will learn about diving deeper, and experience it; using divers aids such as compass, Surface Marker Buoys and delayed SMBs,; improve your rescue skills, and try diving from small boats. The course reinforces the importance of the Buddy system and prepare you for diving in more challenging locations such as UK coastal waters.

What you get When you have completed the course and your five experience dives you can present your BSAC Qualification Record Book to your DO (or BSAC HQ) who will then award the Sports diver certification. This qualifies you to dive to 35m(following assessed depth progression) when accompanied by a diver with similar or a higher level of qualification. If you are not a current member of BSAC, or if you have qualifications from another agency such as PADI you can still do the course, and you will then get a free 3-month membership of BSAC direct.
