Question:  Am I disqualified to learn Scuba Diving if I answer "YES" on the Medical Questionnaire form?

Answer: The purpose of this Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by your doctor before participating in recreational diver training. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities.

Question: Do I need to know how to swim to become a scuba diver?

Answer: In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety.

Question: Will having a history of Ear troubles, Diabetes, Asthma, Allergies or smoking preclude me from scuba diving?

Answer:  Not necessarily. Any condition that affects the ears, sinuses, respiratory or heart function, or may alter consciousness is a concern, but only a doctor can assess a person’s individual risk. Doctors can consult with the Divers Alert Network (DAN) as necessary when assessing fitness to dive.

Question:  How old do you have to be to become a scuba diver?

Answer:  The minimum age is 10 years old (in most areas).

Children under the age of 13 require parent or guardian permission to register for PADI eLearning.
