No Previous Experience
If you have no existing qualification, then you will be required to undertake our Trainee programme, with the goal of becoming a Diver 2**.
The trainee program is generally run prior to the start of the Dive season, in the winter months.
All training is not rushed and is designed to build up water confidence in the trainee under the supervision of one of our Club's instructor.
The progression is Trainee Diver -> Diver 1* -> Diver 2**
As a trainee you will be under the guidance of an instructor
Training takes place in three stages, in the pool, shallow open water diving and shallow depth boat dives.
On completion of the trainee course, you will have a Diver 1* Star qualification.
At this point the aim will be to working toward the Diver 2* Star qualification.
This will allow the newly qualified you to dive with non-instructor level divers.
This also frees up instructors to bring in new trainees

The DivingOfficer is responsible for the assessment & verification process of qualifications. This is to ensure that all diving members of the club are diving at appropriate level, with divers of the an appropriate grades, ultimately ensuring the safety of all members of the Club.
This process may require assessment dives or sitting of refresher course as appropriate, at the discretion of the DivingOfficer

Crossover diver – (PADI, BSAC, DAN etc)
Each year we accept crossover divers from other diving associations. Our DivingOfficer will assess your qualification and experience level to see what would be the appropriate level to cross over into the Diving Ireland certification framework.
Associate membership is for the non-diver/ snorkeler who would still like to be involved in club activities but not in the water.
