Medical matters

 

Will I need a medical check?

 

Initially no, but if you take training further there are medical considerations:

For 'try-dives' the answer is 'No' but we do ask you to sign a disclaimer which states that you do not know of any reason why you cannot try diving out.

However, the answer is 'Yes' as soon as your training starts properly. BSAC stipulates that you require a full medical. Alternatively a disclaimer certifying that youare fit to dive can be completed. This is to check that you are medically fit to dive and that it will not endanger your general well-being.
