Dudley Nautilus offer full training under the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) accreditation. We make sure that our training programmes to members’ needs and all sessions are delivered in a friendly, supportive and safe environment. The Clubhouse at Netherton Reservoir has a classroom where we hold our theory and dry practical lessons.

As an initial experience we do ‘Try Dives’ at Halesowen Swimming baths by appointment.  One of our fully qualified instructors will introduce you to the underwater world and provide all information you need to start your diving adventure.

Diver Training and Development

Our Club’s qualified instructors teach the following courses, which conform to BSAC guidelines. Lessons at the Rezza are included in your membership fee. You will need to purchase a training pack per qualification (approx. £45):

We are keen to expand our members’ skills by running one-off BSAC skills development courses (SDCs) at the Club.There is a one-off fee for these courses, but are well worth considering in order to expand your diving knowledge and skills beyond diver grade programmes. Fee is dependent on the course. 

We encourage our members to follow their personal diving interests by attending BSAC training sessions around the country.

Do I need my own equipment?

New trainees can borrow scuba equipment, weight belt, cylinders, regulators and buoyancy compensators from the Club. You can make use of this equipment until you pass your Ocean Diver qualification when we expect you to buy your own kit. We can usually loan smaller items of kit to members on a short-term basis.

Mask and fins are more personal items, therefore you may want to purchase your own when you begin your training (cost £70 – £100).


If you are interested in any of the above training, or have any questions please contact us: training@dudleynautilus.co.uk or email Ian Gay, Membership Secretary: membership@dudleynautilus.co.uk.
