Just to let you know that the courses are going well. We have three people completing the AIDA ** Course at the next meet (17/18) - Ross a saltfree regular, Bryn who some of you might know from Dolphin and new freediver Alexandra. Hopefully all of them will find it gets them further down and come back for more once they are qualified.

First Aid

Hi Sam,
What first aid courses to you offer at the NDC? I have been meaning to get one done for ages because of my paragliding but have not gotten round to it.
Now im diving as well i thought that it would be better to do a first aid course in the water as it would be easier to transfer the skill to dry land should i ever need it paragliding.
Is it possible to do a first aid course on a different weekend to the saltfree meet?


Hi Dan
we run the Emergency First Response programme which is a layperson first aid primary care and CPR course suitable for all walks of life - it is not diving specific

There will be one running in the autumn, probably late Sept/early Oct and we will arrange it so it doesn't clash with diving

watch this space!
