How far will you take this diving thing? It's up to you. With Specialty Diver Programs you can chart your course for a colourful collection of awesome dives. Sure, your diving certification opens up the oceans and lakes to you, but the Specialty Dives take the underwater adventure to depths and places that will last a lifetime. Achieving Specialty ratings can take anywhere from as little as one day to a full weekend but this is all hands-on, so you'll be diving right from the start. For those elements of diving that require specialist certification like Deep, Wreck or Diver Propulsion Vehicle, these courses are a must before you can experience these fantastic elements of diving.
The list below details all of the Specialty Courses offered here at DIVE Northampton, together with any age or certification restrictions. These courses are run on a regular basis and you shouldn't have to wait long to get started - normally a few days to a couple of weeks. The costs for these courses vary and start from as little as £60. The course price includes equipment, certification and materials so you know up front what things will cost.
You will be given access to the full suite of training materials and videos when you sign up for the course. These you can study at home, at work, on the move... just about anywhere. These are provided to you when you book and are included in your course fees.
We will need a unique email address for each participant. This will be used by them to access their course materials and must be unique to them. This can be changed when they initially log on. Please note that system emails will be sent to this email address so if the voucher is intended as a surprise, please use an alternative, temporary email address.
DIVE Northampton Club Members will receive Course Discounts on certain Specialties. These will be applied when your schedule is confirmed and you pay the balance due.
The deposit secures your place on a Specialty Course. You can choose to either pay the balance for your selected course when you book or on the first day of your Course. Some courses may have additional costs associated with them that will be discussed when your schedule is confirmed.
Don't forget to tell us your preferred start month when you book. Once we receive your booking, we will take a look at our current availability and agree a start date. The preferred date selected is not guaranteed until we confirm the final dates by issuing an agreed schedule.
