BSAC Sports Diver Training


After completing the Ocean Diver course, most divers progress on to Sports Diver, which develops your skills further. Sports Divers are qualified to dive to a maximum of 35m, which opens up many more opportunities to dive in the UK and overseas.


You need to meet the BSAC medical requirements, be confident in the water and have completed the BSAC Ocean Diver qualification or equivalent from another training agency.

The Course

The Sports Diver course consists of:

  • classroom theory lessons
  • a dry practical lesson
  • a sheltered water lesson
  • an optional refresher/orientation dive
  • open water lessons
  • a theory test

BSAC has more information about the Sports Diver training course.

After completing the Sports Diver course you can continue training with the next course, Dive Leader which allows you to lead dives accompanied by other less qualified divers.
