Is a medical check-up a prerequisite to freediving?

Except for the instructor and competitive courses, a medical check-up is not necessary before freediving. Before your course or master’s training, we will ask you to fill in a medical form with a medical statement and a medical history questionnaire.

If you’ve done any freediving or scuba courses before and filled in a similar form, it’s nothing serious. If you are worried, feel free to download the recreational course medical form here so you know what to expect—this is the SSI form; the AIDA and Molchanovs are similar. There is no need to print, scan, and send it to us. We’ll fill it in here when you arrive.

When you see the form, you must fill in a NO at all the questions. If there is a YES somewhere, please get in touch with us at [email protected]. In most cases of a ‘YES,’ it shouldn’t be a big problem, for example, when you answer YES at ‘Recurrent back problems,’ but we still need to know in advance. If it is more serious, we’ll ask you to visit your physician to sign a medical clearance.

If you plan to do a professional course, you can find the form here.

Didn't find the answer?

If you have a question, and you couldn't find it here in our freediving knowledge base, please feel free to contact us at any time. We love talking to you, and usually, we'll get back to you within the hour. If not, then we're diving - our support heroes are freedivers too 😉
