Guest Diver Dates for 2017

It’s that time of year again where we’re looking forward to another great diving season.  Once again we’re hoping that service divers will continue  to come and help us out by acting as either guest or rescue divers during our various courses. The dates below are when we require people.

If you are interested then please get in touch with Mr Graeme Crouch on 9375 54729 or [email protected]

Rescue Divers

  • Ocean Diver Course ODC1: 3rd – 7th April
  • Ocean Diver Course ODC2: 12th – 16th Jun
  • Ocean Diver Course ODC3: 31st Jul – 4th Aug
  • Ocean Diver Course ODC4: 7th – 11th Aug
  • Ocean Diver Course ODC5: 4th – 8th Sep
  • Ocean Diver Course ODC6: 13th – 17th Nov

If you would like to help out and have not rescue dived with us before you would need to come in and complete some paper work on the Monday of the course and then on the Tuesday take part in some skills and drills in the pool at HMS Raleigh along with diving with a 3ltr pony as a alternate independent air source. If you cannot make either the Monday or Tuesday please let us know at the earliest opportunity as we can then look to do all this on either the Monday or Tuesday. If you have already completed the paper work and pool dive with us there is no requirement for you to come down and rescue dive until the Wednesday of the course, we look to do 5 open water dives 2 on the weds, 2 on the Thursday and then a depth progression on the Friday if the weather is good (normally on HMS Scylla).

Guest Divers

As part of the BSADS and ESADS course, we need to give the students the opportunity to plan and manage diving with realistic numbers of divers. This provides a great opportunity for individuals to come along and enjoy a few days diving whilst also gaining the opportunity to see what these courses are all about.

  • BSADS 2: 24th – 28th Apr

  • BSADS 5: 4th – 8th Sep
  • BSADS 6: 9th – 13th Oct
  • BSADS 7: 6th – 10th Nov
  • ESADS Assessment 1: 20th – 24th Mar

  • ESADS Assessment 3: 14th June – 18th Aug
