Relaxing in the Pool

The BSAC offers an easy way to transfer your skills from other CMAS affiliated diving organisations such as PADI, NAUI, SSA etc. This is known as a Statement of Alternative Training (SALT), and recognises that the new branch member has a qualification that the BSAC considers to be of a similar standard to an appropriate BSAC qualification. With this SALT Certificate, the new member becomes a full BSAC diver and may take part in all branch activities appropriate to that grade, including training for the next higher BSAC qualification.

Unfortunately the SALT process applies only to diving qualifications and not to diving instructor qualifications as although diving is the same for all agencies, the teaching methods may differ.

To obtain a SALT Certificate, the new member will be expected to present evidence of the qualifications they already hold in the form of original and authenticated certificates, training records in other agency logbooks, etc. Often a SALT certificate can be obtained by simply attending a lecture covering the background and history of the BSAC and gaining an understanding of the BSAC'88 Decompression Tables.

To check if your current qualification meets the SALT requirements, and to discuss any documentation you may need to bring, please contact us on the email or phone number above.
