So you want be a scuba diver?
Well, you’ve come to the right place!
We’re about to unlock a world of wonder for you. Another universe where you can float weightless like an astronaut, experience life-changing interactions with creatures few people have ever seen and have adventures you never knew existed. You'll experience and do things you never imagined you would… it’s going to be amazing!
Our highly qualified instructors will turn you into a BSAC Ocean Diver, an internationally recognised diving qualification understood for its quality over the rest.
After that, the underwater world is yours to explore!
The Ocean Diver training programme consists of a theory element followed by pool training and finally, we let you repeat and practice your skills in Open Water where you really get to see and experience the magic of scuba diving.
With the option to learn "In-Club" at a more leisurely pace or get your qualification in quick time at our Partner Dive Centre - the World Famous "STONEY COVE", the choice of how you want to do your training is yours!
Theory training will be delivered via eLearning, whether you choose to train in-club or with Stoney Cove and will be supported by your club instructors who will help you with anything you might need a bit more time with.
If you choose in-club training, your pool sessions will take place over a number of weeks at our fortnightly session at Aspire@ThePark. Once you have completed the pool sessions, open water sessions will be arranged at a time convenient for both you and your instructor, but will be spread out over a number of weeks.
If you choose to do your training with Stoney Cove Dive Centre, once your theory is complete, we will contact the centre and book you onto one of their intensive courses at a convenient time for you where you will complete all your pool sessions and open water lessons at their site in Leicestershire in only 5 days.
