  Sports Diver Manuals

The Sports Diver Course will take a diver who has previously gained their first diver qualification, or Advanced Ocean Diver qualification and help make you a more confident and capable diver.

This course is therefore aimed at those who have completed their entry-level diver qualification with any agency, not just BSAC. For those who have completed the Advanced Ocean Diver course, credit is given to those parts previously taught. Where a student has previously been taught certain skills with other agencies, those lessons may be streamlined.

The course builds upon the rescue skills taught in the Ocean Diver course, along with Nitrox[1], navigation skills and dive equipment. Once qualified, the Sports Diver may also do depth progression dives, ultimately to 35m and start doing dives that require mandatory Decompression stops.
