Master freediver course
The Master Freediver course is your step towards becoming a professional freediver. The Master course is run all year. After completion of the course you will be allowed to assist instructors and it will prepare you to assist other freedivers on their freedive journey. During the course you will improve your static and dynamic apnea as well as your maximum freediving depth. Through practise you will improve your safety knowledge, practise better equalisation, train free immersion and constant weight, breathing and posture techniques. At the end of this course you will be able to freedive to depth of maximum 40 metres with ease…
The course is divided into a theory session, confined water sessions and open water sessions. Each session has different exercises that you will have to complete in order to become a freedive master. We will let you assist with freedive training to practise your guiding and assisting skills.
