Initial training – Ocean Divers

For your initial Ocean Diver training you will need to hire basic equipment and purchase the training materials. The price for this is £200.00 with face to face theory lessons, or £225.00 with e-Learning. This includes books and other materials, or access to the e-Learning platform, and hire of a set of basic equipment (BCD, cylinder, regulator set, weight belt and weight) until you have completed the course. Once qualified, you will be expected to buy your own kit. But if you do need to hire club kit for longer, the prices can be found here.

N.B. Mask, snorkel and fins will be provided on short term loan on pool nights but must be returned at the end of each session. It is expected that these low cost items will be purchased by the diver within a few weeks of starting lessons.

Training beyond Ocean Diver

As a member all your club based training is provided by volunteer instructors who don’t charge for their time. But there is a small charge for the training manuals and qualification book, and to cover some of the instructors’ expenses. Each subsequent diver grade after your initial training costs £100.00. If you are crossing over from another agency then your first course with us will cost £110.00, as it includes your Qualification Record Book.

Try dive

If you want to have a try dive before deciding whether or not join this costs just £25.00.
