Great - you're in the right place - continue your scuba adventure with BSAC!
The great thing about being already qualified (as well as hopefully having a passion for the sport already) is that it is easy to start diving with BSAC. Other agency qualifications are recognised (PADI, SSI, SAA, ScotSAC, NAUI etc) and no further training is necessary, unless you’d like further training.
You can do further training if you wish…
If you would like to further your training with a BSAC qualification, your diver grade is recognised so you can progress to the next higher BSAC grade (no need to retrain you can simply progress). So, for example…
If you are PADI Open Water or Advanced Open Water qualified
These qualifications are similar to: BSAC Ocean Diver
Your next training course/qualification would be: BSAC Sports Diver
PADI Rescue Diver
This is similar to: BSAC Sports Diver
Your next training course/qualification would be: BSAC Dive Leader

Haven’t dived in the UK?
If you haven’t dived in the UK before that’s absolutely fine. We can teach you everything you need to know. BSAC clubs can help you with a little extra training if necessary – such as drysuit training or a general refresher if you haven’t been diving for a while and need to refresh your scuba skills. Or, you can progress to the next diver grade should you wish.
