If you already have diving certification you are more than welcome to join Croydon BSAC.
We accept divers from any training agency (PADI, SSI, SAA, IANTD, TDI etc etc) into the club and can continue your training via BSAC’s SALT chart.
Typically, those who are already qualified come to the club having gained a PADI Open Water certificate. This qualification crosses over to BSAC’s Ocean Diver grade, which means that after sitting a quick “Intro to BSAC” session you can carry straight on with your diver training.
If you have a more advanced qualification, then you can continue your training, or if you’d prefer just join up and get diving!
Note: UK diving is very different to diving abroad, so some familiarisation with the techniques and equipment used in the UK along with a shallow warm-up dive is advisable.
