Dead simple this one, I need to find a website that can tell me locations of dive schools all over the UK (friends and I need to learn to dive but we live in a number locations all over the place)

Any help will be gratefully received

Best idea, consider doing PADI Open Water , that way all your friends can do the same course theory and pool work (confined water) at various locations - then you can obtain a referal and then all get together and complete the Open Water together as a group of friends on holidays

Yes i was wondering if you could helpme get the deffinitons of these can you tell me what "SPG" and a "BCD" stands for...Also,can tell me what the danger level in your oxygen tank is(what P.S.I level?) i would really appreciate it thank you
SPG stands for Submersible pressure gauge
BCD = Buoyancy compensating device, often abbreviated to BC (buoyancy compensator) or simply "stab jacket". Hope this helps :)
