This week BSAC's first in-person instructor training scheme (ITS) event of 2021 was held at Stoney Cove as we see a return to diving across the UK.

Following the further easing of Covid-19 restrictions across the UK, BSAC ITS team have been able to reschedule and restart in-person training, beginning with an Open Water Instructor Course (OWIC) that ran on Wednesday.

Five candidates joined the course to progress their instructor development, performing excellently in challenging, low visibility conditions.
