Your regional coach

About Alex Bicheno, South Scotland Region Coach

I have been diving since 2011, when I took the plunge into a Scottish sea loch. Since then, I have made it to Advanced Diver, Advanced Instructor and Instructor Trainer. In 2015 I started working towards my First Class Diver, which is really helped my diving skills and knowledge.

South Scotland has some of the best diving in the UK. From St Abbs and Bass Rock on the East Coast, to the deep, dark wrecks on the Clyde, right up to Oban and Mull. We have such a good range of dives to offer, and probably many more to discover.

How we help and support divers and clubs in the South Scotland Region

The regional team has a vast amount of diverse experience to help you get the skills and qualifications to do the type of diving you are interested in. 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.

Training and events in the South Scotland Region

We usually run a number of SDCs every year. We normally run at least one Oxygen Admin, one Practical Rescue Managment (PRM) and one Automated External Defibrillator (AED) course every year. But if someone requests a course, we can normally fit it in. Please feel free to get in touch with the team if you would like a course run. View all South Scotland Regional events
