This is a statement in which you are informed of the risks of skin and scuba diving. The statement also sets out the circumstances in which you participate in the diving at your own risk.

The basic medical questionnaire and statement of understanding need to be filled out prior to your pool or open water diving session. Please answer the questions on your past and present medical history with a YES or NO. If you are not sure, answer YES. If any of these items apply to you, we must request that you consult with a physician prior to participating in scuba diving.
