The PADI Advanced Freediver course is designed to refine and improve your freediving skills, allowing you to progress while learning how your body performs during apnea.
The PADI Advanced Freediver course consists of three main phases:
Knowledge development about advanced freediving techniques and equipment. You’ll study in the classroom and independently using the PADI Freediver Touch.
Confined water session to learn stretching and relaxation techniques as well as refine static and dynamic apnea.
Open water sessions to practice deeper free immersion and constant weight freedives, along with additional buddy procedures and rescue techniques.
You need to have a freediving mask, snorkel, fins, wetsuit and weight belt. You’ll also need a surface signaling device and a freediving computer. To enroll in a PADI Advanced Freediver course you must be at least 15 years old and have a PADI Freediver certification. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the course if needed.
