Dive Medical Certificate

Prerequisites:


When learning to Scuba Dive with Geelong Dive Centre, your safety is always our primary concern. It's for this reason that we require all Students to obtain and provide a current Dive Medical Certificate before participating in any of our scuba training programs.

 

The Dive Medical Certificate will not only confirm that you're fit to dive and safely begin your scuba training lessons, but it will also help you to identify if you have any pre-existing medical or health conditions that could be an issue or exclude you from scuba diving.


Open Water: For all beginner entry level Open Water divers, you will be required to provide a current Dive Medical Certificate that was completed within 90 days prior to the starting date of your dive training.

 

Continuing Education: For all Continuing Education Students, you will be required to provide a current Dive Medical Certificate that was completed within the last 2 years prior to the starting date of your dive training.


How Do I Obtain A Dive Medical Certificate?

The Dive Medical Certificate can be easily completed by your regular GP Doctor. If you don't have a regular GP you can also follow the link below to find a full list of SPUMS Accredited Dive Doctors located closest to you:

When you go to see the Doctor, make sure that you remember to take a copy of the PADI Scuba Dive Medical Certificate form with you, as your Doctor may not have spare copies of the form available. This form will be completed by the Doctor. For your convenience you can find a copy of the PADI Dive Medical Certificate below:
