Fitness to dive
Please note that for all in water training, you will need to complete the PADI Medical Form. If you answer “Yes” to any question on page 1 of this form, you will need to obtain and bring a copy of a physician’s approval to dive, which is found on page 2 of the form. Further information for the physician is found from page 3 onwards.
If you have any questions contact your local dive centre or your General Practitioner, who should be able to provide some advice or guidance. Should you wish to see a diving specialist doctor, your dive centre should be able to recommend one. We recommend Mark Downs, whose details can be found at http://www.scuba4fun.org.uk/index.html
Unless otherwise stated on the course page, course costs include all materials required for the course, tank and weight hire, gas fills, pool entrance fees and certification fees. Not included (where applicable) are any open water dive site entrance fees, overnight accommodation or boat fees.
Please note that these courses can all be organised to your requirements, or you can book on to scheduled courses, details of which are on our calendar page. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to organise a course or if you require any further information.
