In general, every certified cave diver is able to dive the mines. If you are not cave trained yet, you even could participate at a „Mine Diver“ class. This is more or less equivalent to the cave diving classes, but completely conducted at mines – not in natural caves.
All the prcedures – for sure – are the same, so it’s easy to upgrade to a cave certification with two dives with your instructor afterwards.
One of the main advantages is that you don’t have to travel to the next natural cave, which often is hundreds or thousands kilometers.
Mine diving classes include theory, mine dives and dry runs as well.
