Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Introduction

This part of ISO 24801 is one of a series of International Standards relating to recreational diving services,

which have been prepared with the aim of establishing a set of specifications for safety practices and the

provision of services.
These International Standards specify:

— necessary levels of experience and competency of scuba divers and scuba instructors;

— safety practices and requirements for recreational scuba diving service providers appropriate to

the different diving levels.

The requirements specified are minimal; they do not preclude the provision of additional training or the

evaluation of additional competencies by a service provider. These International Standards represent

a tool for comparison of existing (or future) qualifications of scuba divers. They do not represent a

course programme, nor do they imply that course programmes and scuba diver qualifications issued by

different nations or training organizations are required to correspond to these levels.

Level 2 — Autonomous diver
1 Scope

This part of ISO 24801 specifies the competencies required of a scuba diver in order to obtain a scuba

diver qualification from a training organization attesting that he/she has met or exceeded scuba diver

level 2 (“Autonomous diver”), and specifies evaluation criteria for these competencies.

It also specifies the conditions under which training is provided, in addition to the general requirements

for recreational diving service provision in accordance with ISO 24803.

This part of ISO 24801 applies to training and evaluation in recreational scuba diving.

3.2
scuba instructor
individual qualified in accordance with ISO 24802-1 or ISO 24802-2
3.3
dive leader
individual qualified in accordance with ISO 24801-3
3.4
breathing gas
mixture of oxygen and nitrogen with no less than 20 % oxygen
3.5
confined water

swimming pool with a depth appropriate to the activity or body of water, offering similar conditions

with regard to visibility, depth, water movement and access
3.6
open water

body of water significantly larger than a swimming pool, offering conditions typical of a natural body

of water
3.7
diving equipment

equipment consisting of fins, mask, snorkel, regulator, alternative breathing gas system, cylinder,

cylinder-support-system, buoyancy compensator, a quick release weight system (if appropriate),

submersible pressure gauge (breathing gas pressure monitor), means to measure depth and time and to

safely limit exposure to inert gas, diving suit (if appropriate)

Note 1 to entry: An alternative breathing gas system could range from a simple octopus system to a duplicate

breathing system with a separate breathing gas supply.

Note 2 to entry: Specific environments can require additional equipment (e.g. an underwater navigational aid,

knife/cutting device, delayed surface marker buoy).
3.8
direct supervision

supervision of a group of divers by a scuba instructor or a dive leader who is in a position that allows

rapid intervention on behalf of the divers
4 Competencies of a recreational scuba diver at level 2 (“Autonomous diver”)

Scuba divers at level 2 shall be trained such that when evaluated in accordance with Clause 10 they are

deemed to have sufficient knowledge, skill and experience to dive with other scuba divers of at least the

same level in open water without supervision of a scuba instructor.

Scuba divers at level 2 are qualified to dive within the following parameters unless they have additional

training or are accompanied by a dive leader:

— dive to a recommended maximum depth of 20 m with other scuba divers of the same level;

— make dives, which do not require in-water decompression stops;

— dive only when appropriate support (e.g. first aid kit, a dive leader, support vessel; as appropriate to

the dive site and the divers’ experience) is available at the surface;

— dive under conditions that are equal or better than the conditions where they were trained.

If diving conditions are significantly different from those previously experienced, a scuba diver at level

2 requires an appropriate orientation from a dive leader.

Where further instruction is required this may only be provided by a suitably qualified scuba instructor

of level 2. If accompanied by a scuba instructor, a scuba diver at level 2 may gain progressive experience

beyond these parameters and develop competency in managing more challenging diving conditions

(e.g. increased depth and current, reduced visibility, extreme temperatures) designed to lead to higher

qualifications.
