Lisburn Sub Aqua Club is delighted to be running the popular BSAC Ocean Diver Training programme starting on 13th March 2012.
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to dive, this course is for you as its aimed at beginners and provides the essential knowledge and skills needed to prepare for open water diving.
The BSAC Ocean Diver course prepares for this in the safety of a swimming pool or sheltered water and an introduction to open water in a controlled, safe manner. Experience and confidence will be gained under the guidance of a qualified instructor. Maximum depth - 20m.
To enrol on the BSAC Ocean Diver Course with Lisburn Sub Aqua Club you must be 14 years or older. A basic level of comfort in the water is important and you will have to demonstrate that you can swim 200m in swimwear.
The BSAC Ocean Diver course has three main stages: 1. Lessons and theory assessment on the basic principles of scuba diving. 2. Five confined water dives to learn the basics in the water (usually in a swimming pool). 3. Five open water dives to further develop your scuba diving skills
Will hopefully be from start to finish! Learning to dive is a life changing experience for many people. Breathing underwater for the first time is something you will never forget and the experience of learning with others is great fun. Your instructor is trained to look after you every step of the way.
As you will be training with BSAC qualified instructors places are limited so if you are intrested please contact our Membership Secretary Marie Wallace either by e-mailing email@example.com or by calling 077 344 11181
The construction of the Rampion wind farm located 13-23km offshore of Worthing in Sussex is now in progress. BSAC wish to ensure that our members and other recreational divers are aware of the potential impact on their diving, in terms of access to sites and their health and safety:
