The current cost of the course and one-year membership is £310.00 for an adult member (with a place being secured for a £5.00 none refundable deposit), made up as follows

BSAC membership (12 months)£60 (Discounts for Students and Juniors available)  
Warrington SAC Membership (12 months) £125 (Discounts for Students and Juniors available)  
Course & Training Pack£125 (this covers the cost of pool entry, full SCUBA kit for use in the pool only. Training notes and your diver’s qualification card, obtained on course completion) 


  • When training outside a student will cover their own costs. Travel. If in a training quarry membership around £10 for two years, and daily access currently £10.
  • Trainees will pay for their own air during training. This is in the region of £3-£5 a fill which should last for a couple of pool sessions.
  • Trainees are encouraged to start getting their own kit for use in open water, but as a club we are all there to give advice (the club has some items available for hire)
  • Trainees are responsible for looking after the kit during the pool training period, this includes keeping it at home and bringing it to the pool.
  • As an individual starts in this sport the main thing we ask for is commitment. The instructors at Warrington SAC give their time and support freely. Pool time is expensive and we make every effort to keep our costs low to enable people to take up this sport we enjoy.
  • Should you not complete the course in the designated timeframe small fees may be payable for additional sessions to cover the additional cost the club has to pay. These will be in the region of £5 – £20 depending on what is required. Extra sessions are normally only chargeable if you have failed to turn up (Without a good reason) during the allocated slots.


During the pool sessions all kit is provided (Excluding swimwear) as part of the course fee. Once you go into open water you will be required to buy or hire the bellow items.  You can find kit Widley available second hand iv very good condition. If you need advice on any kit we will be here to help.
