BSAC Dive Leader Course
Taking your BSAC Dive Leader Course in the subtropical waters of Gran Canaria
This course builds on the skills and experience
that you learned on your basic training courses
and develops the skills and attitudes required
for you to regularly and confidently plan and
lead dives with other divers of a similar or
more junior level.
If you are having difficulty organising, or completing your BSAC Dive Leader Training within a BSAC branch, then you have the option to complete all or part of it with our training school. We will complete the required training within the warm, sub-tropical waters of the marine reserve here on Gran Canaria and ensure that you meet the standards set by BSAC for this course.
|Minimum Requirements||Must hold a second level qualification, such as BSAC Sports diver, or equivalent. Must pass BSAC Medical, and be over 14 years of age. You should have a BSAC Qualification Record Book. Divers who are contemplating this level of course should have the majority of their own equipment.|
|Course Content||Seven lessons in the sea in the marine reserve, twelve theory lectures including oxygen administration, some reading, dive planning and marshaling practice and a final exam. If you are already taking a Dive Leader course with a UK BSAC branch you can complete just those sessions that you require with us.|
|Duration and Logistics||Usually 6-7 days, . All transfers included. Timetabled to suit any other holiday or partner commitments.|

|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 BSAC Dive Leader certification. This qualifies you to dive to 45m(following assessed depth progression) when accompanied by a diver with similar or a higher level of qualification. You can also then take less experienced divers to dives within their maximum depth 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.|
