Qualified divers joining BSAC

Oxford Scuba Diving Club (Oxford BSAC) welcomes previous diver training by recognised organisations, whether recreational, commercial or military. It doesn't matter who you trained with, if you've never dived in the UK before or if you haven't dived for a few seasons.

Divers can join BSAC and enjoy diving with any BSAC club and are made to feel very welcome.

We've reproduced this handy table which lets you see what grade you will be transferred to within the BSAC system.


Instructors who have trained with other agencies are also exceptionally welcome. There is a straightforward induction process which recognises instructor qualifications and accreditation to be able to deliver BSAC instruction.

See the information sheets below for details.

Note - unfortunately it is impossible to detail all diver agency details. If more information is required, please contact the Diving Resources Team (DRT) at BSAC HQ.

If you need help please get in touch!

BSAC HQ has a friendly Diver Resources Team waiting to hear from you...
