Training

Lowestoft Sub Aqua Club has a team of 4 Nationally Qualified Instructors who can offer training in the following diving grades: Ocean Diver, Sports Diver and Dive Leader.

The training comprises of;

  • Classroom-based theory lesson and a theory exam. Usually run on a Wednesday night.
  • Pool training lessons. Carried out at our bi-weekly pool nights at the Waterlane Leisure Centre in Lowestoft.
  • Open Water Lessons. These are usually done at an inland diving site such as Gildenburgh Waters, a flooded quarry designed for diving with several wrecks and training platforms.

When you qualify as an Ocean Diver you will be able to dive to 20 metres. As you move through your training to become a Sports diver this is increased to 35 metres. Please take a look at the relevant sections on our website for more information on the diving grades.

Our members have a wide range of diving skills meaning we can offer training in boat handling, kit maintenance and wreck appreciation.

If you have any questions please contact the Training Officer.
