Advanced Diver & First Class Diver

“If you are an enthusiastic diver, why not progress to the BSAC Advanced Diver  and  become a  keystone of the Branch organisational structure?”

Advanced Diver

This course further develops your knowledge and skills. You will gain experience in planning and organising dives at different sites and under different circumstances. Additional experience will be gained in using small boats, chartwork, navigation and many other related skills.

BSAC consider this grade to be representative of a fully trained diver.

First Class Diver

This is BSAC’s highest diving grade and it requires higher than average levels of theoretical knowledge, organisational and personal diving skills. The 1st Class Diver award is a culmination of a number of years diving experience. There is no set course but events are held regularly to help prepare for the task ahead.

BSAC 1st Class Divers are assessed through nationally conducted examinations.
