You want to do some dives in a quality structure without taking a federal license? The FFESSM has just set up the Diving Pass:
Thus, diver already certified, not holding a valid FFESSM license, can perform four dives at the same diving price as any FFESSM license holder.
The Diving Pass is valid in all associative structures or SCA, federal bases, in France, as well as abroad (Scia).
The Diving Pass offers the possibility to any person in possession of a diving diploma (identified or not by the French Code of sport) to be insured for 4 recreational dives for one year following its purchase, without being holder of a FFESSM federal license.
Once issued, the same Diving Pass can be used in several structures.
The Diving Pass does not require a license, but does not call into question the rules for medical certificates.
Divers with other certification bodies may also use the Diving Pass, even if their diploma is not explicitly mentioned in the Sport Code; the Diving Director organizing the activity and positioning of the diver.
The price is 15 € (excluding diving prices) deductible from the cost of the license if it is taken during the validity of the Diving Pass (1 year).
A certificate of the number of dives can be edited by the structure or by the diver himself, via his personal account.
Like any diver presenting himself in a structure, he is placed under the authority of the dive director in accordance with the Code of Sport and Federal Operations.
