Open Water Diver/Ocean Diver*
This is the first qualification you will undertake on your journey into the underwater
world. The course will teach you everything you need to know in order to dive as a
buddy pair or team without supervision of a dive professional.

It is fun, easy and comprises a combination of knowledge development, pool training
and open water qualifying dives.

Disabled divers will follow exactly the same training format, however the skills may
need to be adapted to make allowances for a specific disability. The qualification
issued will denote how many assistants/buddies are required.

All required equipment will be supplied.

Advanced Open Water Diver*
This next level will introduce you to sample a range of additional diving activities,
including deep, navigation and a host of other elective dives. You'll complete 5 dives
under the supervision of an instructor and a small amount of knowledge development.

Rescue Diver*
In this course, you will learn further self-rescue skills and also how to assist another
diver. You will also discover a great deal about your own strengths and limitations. It's
a serious course, but it is a huge amound of fun and your confidence as a diver will
grow considerably.

Learn a range of different diving activities in detail. There are many to choose from,
including: deep, nitrox, wreck diving, drysuit diving, digital underwater photography,
buoyancy, drift diving, boat diving, night diving, search & recovery and many more.

If you have the desire to assist other divers, this is the course for you. As a qualified
Divemaster, other divers will look to you for guidance and advice. You can introduce
new divers to the excitement of diving, assist instructors with courses and even
teach some specialties independently.
