A medical exam is required prior to starting the Green Divemaster course, and is normally done on the island with a local doctor for a cost of $30-40.  For any of the courses prior to the divemaster course (for example, Advanced Open Water or Rescue Diver), there is a separate PADI Medical Statement that must be completed prior to starting the course.  If there are any ‘yes’ answers to any of the medical history questions, you must first obtain a physician’s clearance before the course can start. The second page of the form is where the physician signs off – please bring the entire form to your physician as there is important information for them on all pages.
