Every respectable diving school will require a certificate of fitness for diving before allowing you to dive. It is advisable to find a specially trained doctor who is familiar with this particular examination.

Which examinations are carried out?

For the assessment of fitness for diving at our institute, your personal medical history is taken and a physical examination is carried out.
Moreover, following tests are important:

  • Investigation of airways (nose and ears)
  • ECG (Electrocardiogram)
  • Chest X-ray (if advisable)
