The completion of a Standardized Diving Physical is required for all students prior to starting class. All students must complete a diving physical before any hyperbaric chamber or diving exposure. Some medical conditions may be disqualifying for diving. Disqualifying conditions can include a history of seizures, chronic inability to equalize sinus and middle ear pressure,significant lung disorder/disease, major nervous system disorder/disease, and certain bone conditions. Instructions, industry regulations, and application for Physicians are listed in the ADMISSIONS section of website and can be obtained by any Administrative Staff member of CDI.
NOTE: We recommend all graduates obtain an ADCI standardized physical prior to obtaining employment as certain employers may require the ADCI Physical Card. If your employer requires such authorization, your medical practitioner must use the standardized ADCI diving Physical form.
Final determinations for fitness to dive must be made by a physician. All cost related to such exams are at the student’s expense.
