Field school students must be in the possession of basic scuba certification (either CMAS *, PADI Open Water, or equivalent certification from a recognized agency) and have participated in at least 10 dives.

Training Program Participants must be in the possession of the following scuba certification: either CMAS **, PADI Advanced Open Water, BSAC Advanced Sports Diver, or equivalent certification from a recognized agency, and have participated in at least 50 dives. Applicants will be required to send copies of their diving qualifications, along with a medical statement. Original logbook and certification cards must be presented to the CUA Diving Officer on arrival.
     
The dive training area and the wreck site itself are approximately 10 meters deep (ca. 30 ft). For reasons of safety, the excavation area that is open to students is 3-4 meters deep (9-12 ft.). This also allows you to work underwater for 60-70 minutes using a 14 liter tank or 60-90 min using the Hookah compressor. Visibility is typically quite good. All divers are required to surface at a designated location for safety reasons. Depending on weather conditions, diving will take place 5-6 days a week.
