About Paul Miller, South Scotland Region Coach
My Dad and I embarked on our diving journey together when I was 13, at our local club. After a few years of training, some very chilly dives in quarries and dips in the sea off North Wales, we completed our Sports Diver qualifications. We dived on family holidays and adventures to Scotland, I couldn’t get enough. When I went to university, I knew I had to get involved in the dive club; fortunately the club was thriving and I was able to complete my Dive Leader and Instructor qualifications there, whilst getting involved with the committee, ultimately becoming the Chairman.
After university I pursued more advanced diving, both UK based expeditions and technical training. I have been fortunate to work for a BSAC centre in Malta as an instructor and dive guide, but I did miss the diving in Scotland. I moved to Edinburgh at the beginning of 2017 and have been involved with Edinburgh University club as Diving Officer. I love the adventure of expedition style diving, taking our RIB’s and compressors to wild corners of Scotland.
How we help and support divers and clubs in the South Scotland Region
The South Scotland region has as vast experience network to support diver and instructor training to the highest level. To help achieve this, we can offer Skill Development Courses (SDCs) or we can help run them in clubs. Also, if clubs or direct members require help with the diver training program, we can help run training days for every level up to Advanced Diver as well as preparation sessions for First Class.
