We are happy to inform you about the costs of the medical statement. Check the exact costs with the dive doctor.
Do you also want to know how you can help others? Or do you want to manage people who can help others? Before joining the IDC or your Divemaster course, follow the EFR Instructor Course. A must to have and to help others. The Emergency Oxygen Provider course is also a must. Of course you can also become an instructor in this. Your own health is not only important, but also that of others while diving.
If you think now, I am not yet ready for training as a PADI Pro, then follow the rescue course or the RNLI Sea Survival Specialty. Both are good preparations for the career as a PADI Pro. These courses teach you how to act in emergency situations and how to prevent them. Of course it is important for every diving course that you are healthy. You must submit a medical statement for each course. ✔
