I am already a certified scuba diver, can I skip your Level 1 freediving course?
Some certification organisations (such as AIDA) allow skipping level 1 because their Level 1 is equivalent to Basic Freediving of other organisations (such as SSI, PADI), and their Level 2 is the Level 1 of others.
SSI's free diving course level 1 is open to anyone who has no diving experience at all.

Do I need to know how to swim in order to join your freediving courses?
Yes! Each student must be able to swim 300 meters without equipment and assistance. Learn and practice if you cannot achieve this right now. Learning swimming is worth your time and effort!
I can only hold my breath for 30 seconds, can I learn free diving?
Our course will teach students how to hold their breath longer and consume less oxygen during diving. Don't worry! We humans are not used to holding our breath, because we all live on land! But with the right skills and practice, we will be able to stay underwater longer and longer.
Feel free to whatsapp us if you have more questions!
Freediving Equivalent Chart
Each certification organisation names their courses differently. Please note that SSI’s Level 1 is equivalent to AIDA Level 2 - AIDA allows scuba divers skip Level 1 and jump to Level 2, while SSI welcomes everyone to be trained Level 1 regardless of the diving experience.
