The students and instructors making their way to the training platform

This weekend saw us take our latest 5 students to The National Diving and Activity Centre in Chepstow to complete their PADI Open Water Diver qualification after they completed their referral dives in Hebron Hall, Cardiff earlier in the year. We're pleased to say we had a 100% pass rate.

The final qualification dives took place over a weekend, with 2 dives on each day. These dives include an assessment of the skills the students previously learnt in the pool environment, such as mask and equipment skills in an open water environment, along with a navigation section and buoyancy control.

We were fortunate to get some beautiful weather for the weekend and the visibility in the water was fantastic, around 10m. Hopefully we'll see them back to complete their Advanced Open Water Diver qualification in the near future and most of them already have plans for more diving in the near future.

So, congratulations to Aaron, Allanah, Huw, Michael and Sam, the latest members of the scuba diving community!

Out of the water, our instructors and Divemasters have continued to expand their knowledge and training and have started the RLSS National Water Safety Management Programme. This is a nationally recognised course that covers safety across all types of water and will see them participating in a number of practical sessions on rivers, lakes, beaches and gorges.
