Is a medical check-up a prerequisite to freediving?
Except for the instructor and competitive courses, it is not a prerequisite to have a medical check-up before freediving. We will ask you before your course or master training to fill in a medical form with a medical statement and a medical history questionnaire.
It’s nothing serious, you probably filled in a similar form before, with any freedive or scuba course you did. In case you are worried, feel free to download the recreational course medical form here, so you know what to expect – 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 need to fill in a NO at all the questions. If there is a YES somewhere, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In most cases of a ‘YES’ it shouldn’t be a big problem like for example when you answer YES at ‘Recurrent back problems’, but then we still need to know in advance. If it is more serious, we’ll ask you to visit your physician to get a medical clearance signed.
If you are planning to do a professional course, you can find the form here.
