Recreational scuba diving

Recreational diving is an opportunity for students and staff to experience the environment they work in. It can also promote training to become a scientific diver. University of Gothenburg has no responsibility for what staff and students do in their spare time but work at a field station often means spending leisure time at the station. At leasure time you are allowed to rent boats and use diving facilities or compressor, if you have the required skills. The diver should then:

  • have a minimum skill level of CMAS**, PADI Rescue Diver or equivalent certification level for scuba divers
  • be able to show a valid declaration of health / medical examination according to recommendations from SSDF or another educational system
  • have undergone CPR training within the last three years
  • if using personal diving equipment, you must present service certification of the equipment according to recommendations from manufacturer
