BSAC Lanzarote offers both the BSAC Ocean Diver and BSAC Sports Diver Nitrox Workshops. BSAC divers that qualifed before January 2007 and have yet to take the Nitrox workshops are not qualifed to buy Nitrox fills or in the case of BSAC Lanzarote enjoy FREE Nitrox fills.
The BSAC Ocean Diver Nitrox Workshop is aimed at pre2007 qualifed BSAC Ocean Divers, so that they become upto date with the current Ocean Diver syllabus, and
can dive using Nitrox or air.
It is also aimed at divers coming into BSAC with an equivalent certification from another dive agency.
The BSAC Sports Diver Nitrox Workshop is aimed at pre2007 qualified BSAC Sports Divers who, have already attended an Ocean Diver Nitrox Workshop so that they
can become upto date with the current Sports Diver syllabus and enjoy the benefits of decompression diving with Nitrox or hold the BSAC Basic Nitrox Diver
qualification as part of their Ocean Diver qualification.
It is also aimed at divers coming in from other dive agencies.
