Not so long ago, a diving centre of Kazakhstan was opened in Aktau. It has become 111 countries in which you can fully complete the entire training course under the international SSI program (SCUBA SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL). This organization was founded in Germany 50 years ago (in 1970) and already has more than three thousand diving centres around the world. Upon completion of training of this centre, divers can receive an international certificate, which gives them the right to scuba diving anywhere in the world. It is especially worth noting that diving is all such a rather dangerous sport, and a person needs significant theoretical, practical and psychological preparation before the first dive.
To fully enjoy an engaging and exciting scuba diving, you should contact only specialized and certified diving centres that will ensure maximum comfort and safety.
Before starting training, it is necessary to consult with a doctor, since scuba diving has a lot of medical contraindications. Among them, the main ones are ENT organs diseases, asthma, cardiovascular diseases and various endocrine diseases. If you have had a tonsil or pneumonia, it is better to avoid scuba-diving for 2-3 weeks. Also, do not dive underwater if the day before you are feeling exhausted, slept poorly or drank strong alcohol.
