On the liveaboard boat BSAC instructors will offer bespoke training to meet divers' needs. From Skill Development Courses such as Accelerated Decompression Procedures, AED and Compressor Operations, to workshops on dive management, knots and shot-lines, charts divers will be able to progress their diving whilst soaking in the rich history and awe-inspiring dives on offer. 

The trip is designed to give BSAC members the opportunity to develop themselves in whichever way they want, while in a setting well-prepared to give them a wealth of opportunities.
