Yes, but in Europe you are best getting the International Certificate of Competence (ICC), this is just a paperwork exercise with your proficiency licence and an additional £52 fee.

  • Passport Photo for the certificate
  • Lunch money or packed lunch, there are plenty of local places to get a bite
  • Swimming costume or a wetsuit if you have one
