This week’s diver training was held at QEGS swimming pool in Blackburn.

Helping a try-diver into his scuba gear in the pool.

There was a father & son doing a try-dive; however the one of them was a qualified BSAC diver but hadn’t done any scuba diving in the last few years.  However, by the end of the session it was clear that he hadn’t forgotten his diving skills!

At the same time, we had three Ocean Diver trainees. Ocean Diver is our initial diving qualification and is recognised worldwide. Once completed, divers are qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 20m.  Two of the Ocean Diver trainees were embarking on their first official pool lesson after both doing a try dive the previous week.

The third Ocean Diver was several weeks into her training and her skills were practised under the watchful eye of one of our Assistant Diving Instructors, Katie.  Striding entries, controlled descents and mask clearing skills in deeper water.

Many thanks to Naz (Open Water Instructor), Katie (Assistant Diving Instructor) and James (Dive Leader) for helping at the pool.
