New ScotSAC Crossover Guidelines


Our updated crossover guidelines have been published! This information covers the cross over procedure to ScotSAC from qualifications issued by PADI, BSAC and the SAA, and allows each member who has previously trained with another dive agency to assess what they would have to do to upgrade their existing qualification(s) to a ScotSAC diver/instructor grade.

Head to the crossover page on our website to see full details.

The information given on this page is provided as guidance, and as each BDO is responsible for all training and diving activities within their Branch, they are at liberty to decide if a new member requires further appropriate refresher training before being issued with a ScotSAC qualification.
