months or other in land sites like Hodge Close or Wastwater in the Lakes.

A. We have members from 12 years old to or oldest at 84 and still diving.

Q. DO I NEED TO BUY LOTS OF EQUIPMENT.

A. No. At the start we provide every thing you need, all you need is shorts and a t-shirt.
As you progress we advise you to get your own Mask and then fins and once open water
qualified you can start to put your own kit together.

Q. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE.

A. There are 6 lectures which you can attend or online e-learning
A 25 question multiple choice exam
Minimum of 6 pool lessons (may need more if struggling on anything)
And 4 open water dives (over 2 days again may need more)

This can all be done several ways
1. lectures online and 2 weekends
2. at your own pace with help from our instructor team and to a time scale
that fits your busy life. But usually one about 12 weeks.
