Question
Posted : January 23, 2006
Hi
I am a Paddy open water diver and have been diving for about 10years with about 70 dives to my name and at the age of 55 require a the 2year medical cert to keep up my diving. The question I have is that my job, a Marine Engineer also requires a strict medical (ENG 1) for the M.C.A (Maritime & Coastguard Agency) that last two years. Would this be acceptable as a diving medical? Hope to hear from you. Chris

No it would not, its best you see a dive doc for the medical as it has to be specific to underwaqter conditions.
