Continue the Adventure

London Skin and SCUBA Club training is all about fun and fulfilling our goal of training safe divers. This is why we combine courses from ACUC and the Divers Alert Network. The combination of this education will give you additional skills you may need and prepare you for situations you could encounter in your underwater adventures. Knowledge is power. We offer this training as a package and you have the flexibility of taking them as a package or individual. If you have any questions please contact us.

If you are interested in any of our continuing training courses, please contact the chief instructor at 519-660-9063 or e-mail at training@londonskinandscuba.ca

Advanced Diver

In this course you will expand on the theory that you learned in the open water course. You will also be introduced to some specialty diving, so that you can later decide which specialties you like and which specialty courses you might wish to take.

You will learn more about Equipment Maintenance, Reduced Visibility Diving (night diving, etc), Confined Space Diving (shipwrecks, etc) Underwater Navigation, Marine Biology and Ecology, Deep Diving (40 metres/130 feet) Basic Boatmanship notions, etc

Prerequisites: Open water certified and at least 15 years old, know how to swim and complete medical screening. The student must have at least 10 hours of bottom time or 20 open water dives before obtaining the certification, but the course can be started with 2 hours of bottom time.

You can now register for the Spring 2019 Advanced Open Water course here.

Rescue Diver or Rescue Specialist

This course is the minimum level to which ACUC recommends all divers should be trained to. You must already be certified as an Advanced Diver in order to become a Rescue Diver. However, if you’re not yet an Advanced Diver, you can still complete the course and get the certification of Rescue Specialist. The course will train you to recognize diving problems and emergencies before they occur, and if they occur anyway, then you will also learn how to handle these problems and emergencies.

Rescue Diver Prerequisites: Open water certified and at least 16 years of age at start of the course. Hold Advanced Certification with 12 Hours of Bottom Time to start the course and 15 hours to be granted certification.
Rescue Specialist Prerequisites: Open water certified and at least 16 years of age at start of the course. 12 Hours of Bottom Time to start the course and 15 hours to be granted certification.

Dive Master

You must already be certified, or be certified during the Divemaster course, as a First Aid Provider and Emergency Oxygen Provider.

The main characteristics of this course is that students that successfully complete the course, will be able to act as a Dive Controller, lead certified divers in open water dives as a Dive Guide, assist in the training of new divers, teach some non certification ACUC Scuba courses and also, teach, evaluate and certify some dry specialties (specialties where no water training is involved), as long as the Divemaster holds the corresponding Specialty Instructor rating.

Prerequisites: Open water certified and at least 18 years old, know how to swim and complete medical screening. Obtained ACUC Rescue Diver certification. The student must have at least 40 hours of bottom time and must hold valid First Aid and O2 Provider certification.
