AIDA3

COURSE PURPOSE

The AIDA *** is an intermediate course which builds on the skills learnt in the AIDA ** course. It is designed to cover the necessary skills and knowledge for a recreational freediver to be able to safely freedive with or without a guideline. The aim of the course is to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to independently plan and participate in freediving activities with similarly experienced freedive buddies.
The course is also designed to develop new skills and a higher knowledge of safety procedures and techniques for freediving such as free falling, Frenzel equalising, training tables, the risks of increasing and decreasing pressure and how to minimise these risks.
At the end of our courses you will receive a handout to take home.
