Skill Development Courses

Unlike some clubs, Chelmsford and District try to run as many courses as possible in-house. Where this is not possible we use our close ties with the regional coaching teams to link up with another club to run the course, or to bring in instructors with additional skills.

SDCs are generally run over the winter so as not to get in the way of the diving, and details of the courses currently being planned are listed below. If members would like specific courses run then in the first instance speak to the Training Officer, who is responsible for running these.
