It's easy for PADI, SSI, SAA, ScotSAC (and any other agency) Open Water Instructors to teach in BSAC clubs and centres.

BSAC's Instructor Crossover course offers a straightforward route to teach scuba diving in BSAC clubs and centres. BSAC recognises the value of your existing instructor qualification and this crossover course is the way to become familiar with the BSAC Diver Training Programme (DTP).

Instructors from other diving agencies are a fantastic addition to any BSAC club and we are always on the lookout for more inspiring instructors. Did you know? Other agency instructors could start their very own BSAC club (free of charge) or become a BSAC Centre.

Instructors from other agencies can get started in three easy steps...

      1. You can...
        a)   Join a BSAC club near you
        b)   Start your own diving club
        c)   or even become a BSAC Centre
      2. Next, complete the Instructor Crossover Course. This recognises your existing instructor qualifications while bringing you up to speed on BSAC instruction so you can deliver our Diver Training Programme.
      3. Finally, once instructors have their BSAC Instructor Certification, they can teach at a BSAC Centre or within their club as an Open Water Instructor and get the satisfaction of helping other club members train and progress.

Here's what a Scottish Sub-Aqua Club (ScotSAC) Instructor said about crossing over to BSAC:

The Instructor Crossover course was a great experience. The balance of training between lectures, interactive learning and open water practical sessions was spot on. I feel confident in delivering the BSAC training schedule to our club members.
