Which pre-requisites do you have to fulfil?

In many countries there are different regulations, which could differ from the basic pre-requisites of the IRTDA standards (e.g. they are more restrictive in another country). This is not very likely; however, the best way would be to inform you at the local IRTDA instructor.   

We recommend

Before you register for a course, you should have a medical check up if you are fit for diving. This examination is conducted from medical professionals with an extra education. In case you had a disease with your cardiovascular and/or respiratory system, this examination is essential in order to ensure your physical fitness in order to take part in the dive course.

What else do I need?

For our program you only need your swimming trunks / bathing suit and to be in good spirit. IRTDA instructors and dive centres are usually well equipped and have well maintained equipment. In some cases you need before your ABC-material.
