Become a Diving Instructor

ECSAC can support you in becoming an Open Water Instructor, anyone who is a Sports Diver or above can take the Instructor Foundation Course and become an Assistant Instructor.  From there it is a matter of practicing and developing your skills and then attending the Open Water Instructor Course and then the Practical and Theory Instructor Exams.

We have First Class Divers and Instructor Trainers in our branch as well as access to the BSAC Regional Coaching team all of whom would be delighted to advise, support and mentor you towards becoming a Diving Instructor.

You can see the progression path in the diagram below:
