Training was delivered at Eccleston Delph and consisted of two reasonably long dives (at least for this time of the year, considering the cold water). This was day 2 of the practical training and Katie completed all the required skills to Simon’s satisfaction.

Katie is really keen to progress and has a specific set of targets as she’s heading off to Scappa Flow later in the year.
On the day, we spotted members of Manchester University Sub-Aqua Club delivering the Accelerated Decompression Procedures SDC to some of their more experienced divers. Read their story at
