The Chester Step Test 

Scuba diving feels uncomplicated when you're drifting over a shallow reef or descending through clear water toward a sandy bottom. On the other hand, diving can be physically demanding, especially when swimming against the current or walking to a dive site with heavy scuba gear. Divers must be physically capable of handling themselves and assisting their dive partners if necessary in certain scenarios.

Dr Lourens De Kock discusses the practical experience in regards to using the Chester step test to determine diver fitness levels as well as how it includes occupational health and fitness.
