The IAHD trainings are internationally acknowledged and allow you to practice scuba-diving everywhere in the world.
Partners can also become divers by taking a course with Genesis Divers (PADI and/or CMAS) if they are not already divers and take the 2 day course of Dive Partner, which will allow them to join and take care of the disabled divers in a safe and adapted way
Specific diving programs for children (PADI Bubblemaker, from 8 years old) and Nitrox diving are also possible. We teach in English, French and German.
For the Confined Water Diver, Open Water Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver categories, there are 3 different levels following the diver’s performances and abilities:
Level 1: the candidate has performed all Physical Performance Requirements and demonstrated the ability to provide equal assistance to a fellow diver should a distress situation arise and assistance be required. This candidate may dive with any other certified adult diver.
Level 2: the candidate has successfully performed the Physical Performance Requirements demonstrating the ability of self help in a distress situation. However, the candidate does not have the ability to provide assistance to a fellow diver in a distress situation. Therefore, in order that equal assistance be available to all divers in a distress situation, it is required that this candidate is required to dive with two adult certified divers one of whom has been trained as a Dive Partner or a professional member of the IAHD.
Level 3: the candidate has completed the dive course and has demonstrated the ability to safely use scuba diving equipment underwater. However, the candidate does not have the ability for self help, nor is able to assist a fellow diver in a distress situation. This candidate is required to dive with three adult certified divers, one of whom has been trained as a professional member of the IAHD.
