This program teaches fundamental freediving techniques. It allows you to comfortably enjoy the aquatic world to depths of up to 20 m/66 ft. You will also practice static apnea. This helps develop your breath-holding abilities and in-water comfort.
Your PFA Freediver course will cover fundamental topics such as:
Is this course for you?
If a student cannot do this, they may receive a certificate reflecting what they can accomplish. Some students take the course for the experience and not the certification. These students often participate in just the confined-water sessions. We are happy to accommodate students who wish to do so; however, we need to know this ahead of time.
To earn PFI Freediver certification, students must be able to:
Watermanship and stamina
Commitment to Safety Enjoyment
At Diving Sports we believe in making sure all our students are receiving the highest quality instruction and customer service. Our instructors are open and honest about what your needs are during each part of the course. This means it is normal for some students to be asked to return for extra training (pool or ocean) prior to certification. This ensures all of our students walk away with everything they need to be safe and have fun for every dive they do following the course.
