AIDA INSTRUCTOR COURSE

LET'S TALK

30 days training

In AIDA 1-4, you learned all about freediving. From the basics all the way to the advanced. Now this is your final lesson from us. You will learn how to teach.

The AIDA Instructor course is for the freedivers willing to turn this sport into a career. Within 30 days you will be trained how to teach AIDA Freediving Courses effectively to aspiring students.

Theory sessions cover not only freediving science and human anatomy but also topics such as planning, marketing and the day-to-day running of your very own freediving school. We also teach legal requirements and risk management to make you not only a great instructor, but a decent entrepreneur as well.

Water sessions are used to complete performance requirements and skill demonstrations. As a part of the Instructor Course, candidates teach trial courses AIDA 2 and 3 under supervision of their Instructor Trainer.

One month prior to starting this course, applicants receive studying materials as well as a topic of their own research which they will present during the IC as one of the practical exams.

We reiterate. This course is the final and most demanding course the AIDA system offers non-competitive freedivers. But also the most gratifying. Your accumulation of freediving knowledge is only worth the effort if you share it with others.
