Sports Diver

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 more opportunities to dive in the UK and overseas.

The Sports Diver course consists of:

  • six classroom lessons
  • a dry practical lesson
  • one sheltered water lesson
  • one optional refresher/orientation dive
  • five 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.
