Course Requirements

To enrol on the BSAC Ocean Diver Course with Lisburn Sub Aqua Club you must be age 14 or older.

You’ll just need to demonstrate that you can comfortably swim 200m in a pool, and the only kit you’ll need is a swimsuit, and towel.

Your membership covers all the Instruction and use of club equipment for the course.

What you’ll learn

You’ll learn how to use basic dive gear, control your buoyancy and move about underwater.

You’ll also learn some basic safety skills and how to plan and manage your diving.

The course includes six theory modules, at least five sessions in a pool or sheltered water, and at least four open-water dives.

The Qualification

Your qualification will be recognised worldwide.

You will be qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 20 metres and use breathing gas mixtures of up to 36 per cent Nitrox to increase your safety on dives (you’ll learn all about Nitrox on the course).

Many ‘learn to dive’ courses don’t teach Nitrox or rescue skills, but BSAC believes they are important skills to start learning from the start of your scuba journey.
