Information on BSAC

Postby deepblue152 » Tue, 23 Jan 2007 10:36 pm

Hi,

Currently I'm a PADI rescue diver, and AAUS qualified Scientific diver, and am looking at doing some BSAC courses, as I've heard rave reviews.

How do I join BSAC?
What are the course requirements/costs?
Does BSAC have an office in Sydney? (I am in Canberra)
With my current qualifications, what level BSAC course would I want to go into? (I am serious about going all the way; approx. 80-90 dives atm)
Is the First Class diver the equivalent of an instructor with some of the mainstream dive companies?
Do you offer any commercial diving courses?
Are the technical diving courses reasonably priced?

Thanks, I know thats alot of questions - maybe I should've called instead.

Cheers,

This is the Melbourne BSAC club link: http://www.melbsac.org.au/

They should be able to put you in contact with somebody in Sydney...not sure.

Hi Deep Blue

How do I join BSAC? - Contact your local club and well thats about it.
What are the course requirements/costs? - Depends on the course,
Does BSAC have an office in Sydney? http://www.sydneysubaquaclub.com/
With my current qualifications, what level BSAC course would I want to go into? Depends, sounds like sport to me??
Is the First Class diver the equivalent of an instructor with some of the mainstream dive companies? - a First class diver is more akin to a course director, so way above instructor level. Instructor you do alongside basic training
Do you offer any commercial diving courses? - Speak to the right people and they do..
Are the technical diving courses reasonably priced? - Do the basics, get to know people, and the courses become very pocket friendly.

Neil
