The potential diver assesment
The Potential Diver Assessment (PDA) is designed to test the attitude and aptitude of anyone wanting to undertake military diver training. Under the watchful eye of a Leading Physical Trainer (LPT) and Royal Navy Diving Instructors, the 2.5-day course also tests the participant’s physical fitness and must be successfully passed in order to gain a recommendation to enter the Royal Navy as a Clearance Diver.
