Welcome to Bradford on Avon Sub Aqua Club
The club is currently only able to help with training for those who are already qualified and looking to progress their diving skills and interests.
For those who are just getting started in diving and want to learn the club has a good relationship with Compass Diving in Melksham who will be happy to get you started in this hobby.
The British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) Training Syllabus embraces the following diving/ training grades. Further details about BSAC can be found at www.bsac.com
1. Ocean Diver - ON HOLD
2. Sports Diver
3. Dive Leader
4. Advanced Diver
5. First Class Diver
1. Assistant Club Instructor
2. Open Water Instructor
3. Advanced Instructor

Ocean Diver, Sports Diver and Dive Leader training are primarily done locally within the branch organisations. Instructor training and Advanced Diver training are normally done by attending external training courses. In addition a number of skill development courses are available including: Boat Handling, Diver Cox, Oxygen Administration and First Aid.
The Sports Diver qualification is recognized world wide if you have plans for an exotic holiday and is broadly equivalent to the PADI Rescue Diver qualification. Full details of the Club and Sports Diver syllabus are contained in our welcome booklet
At other times during the year we run refresher courses on such matters as Diver Rescue and carry out cross over training for prospective members who have non- BSAC qualifications and wish to acquire additional qualifications. Normally such persons are allowed to dive with the club prior to and during the cross over training to the limits imposed by their current qualification.
