MDG is very proud of its high quality training programme and safety record. There are two categories of diver within MDG:
  • Club Diver
  • Certificate Holder (advanced)
In 2006, due to concerns relating to insurance and recognition of qualifications abroad, the club took the decision to bring its training programme fully into line with the Sub Aqua Association diver training programme.

Training Dives

There are club training dives most weekends, these being arranged in the club on Friday evenings.

Most training dives take place in quarries at Salford Quays, Eccleston Delph, Vivian, Capenwray or Dorothea.

Several club members have caravans and boats at Sandy Beach / Penrhyn Bay on Anglesey and so there is also the opportunity to do some wreck diving, weather and sea permitting.
