There are five internationally-recognised BSAC diver grades, from the entry level Ocean Diver through to the highest grade, First Class Diver.
BSAC Diver Grades
BSAC has been training people to dive since the early 1950s. During this time the Diver Training Programme has been regularly updated and improved to keep pace with developments in equipment and diving knowledge. The programme is designed to build confidence and self-reliance, whilst keeping safety uppermost.
Diving skills are taught progressively so that each new experience is built upon step by step. Following basic training in the safety of a swimming pool or protected area, students soon complete their first open water dives to achieve Ocean Diver certification. This progression continues to Sports Diver and beyond, where open water skills and techniques are further developed and experience gained.
All diver training courses are delivered through BSAC clubs, by qualified instructors over a series training sessions and open water dives, followed with the opportunity for regular diving to hone your skills. You can also complete your training over a shorter period of time through our BSAC Training Centre at Pharaoh Dive Club, El Quseir.
With BSAC, the choice is yours – this is YOUR diving journey and we are with you every step of the way.
