PADI Advanced Freediver
Reaching a new depth is an incredible feeling
PADI Advanced Free Diver Course
Who should take this course?
Achieving a new freediving time or reaching a new depth is an incredible feeling. It satisfies that very personal desire to do your best and be proud of what you can accomplish. The PADI Advanced Freediver course is designed to fulfil that personal need to refine and improve your freediving skills, allowing you to progress slowly while learning how your body performs during apnea.
To enrol in a PADI Advanced Freediver course you must be at least 15 years old and have a PADI Freediver certification (or a qualifying certification from another freediver organization). You also need to have a current qualification in CPR and First Aid.
What will you learn?
The PADI Advanced Freediver course consists of three main phases:
- Knowledge development about advanced freediving techniques and equipment. You’ll study independently using the PADI Freediver TouchTM (or your instructor may conduct class sessions).
- Confined water session to learn stretching and relaxation techniques as well as refine static and dynamic apnea. Goal: static apnea of 2 minutes, 30 seconds (2 minutes for freedivers younger than 18) and dynamic apnea of 50 metres (40 metres for freedivers younger than 18)
- Open water sessions to practise deeper free immersion and constant weight freedivers, along with additional buddy procedures and rescue techniques. Goal: constant weight freedive of 20 meters (15 metres for freedivers younger than 18)
