Whatever your skill-level, our instructors are here to support you. HGSAC is part of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC), so our training follows the BSAC framework. New divers joining the club will be enrolled in the BSAC Ocean Diver training programme. All training and equipment is included in your membership, providing you with a comprehensive path of learning including theory and sheltered water lessons, delivering the knowledge, confidence and competence you require to be safe in the water and have a pleasurable diving experience. The conclusion of the Ocean Diver training course usually coincides with our annual summer club trip, making your first open water dive truly memorable as you’re welcomed to UK diving by the friendly seals of the Farne Isles!
In addition to our diver training program for new divers, we can train club members to all level of diving expertise in-house and through regional and national BSAC training schemes. Club members are also encouraged to undertake additional development courses to increase their enjoyment of diving and the safety in which they participate in the sport. These include first-aid, boat handling, marine life identification and much, much more.
