You are already a certified freediver with some good experience and interested in going deeper, longer and improving your freediving technique?
The AIDA 3 Freediver course is designed for the most demanding freedivers.
This course goes into more detail of the theory and training concepts of freediving which will allow you to understand the physiology and techniques behind deep freediving. The instructors will help you to improve your freediving performances safely whilst advancing your safety, buddy and rescue skills.
The AIDA3 is an intermediate course which builds on the skills learnt in the AIDA2 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 equalizing, training tables, the risks of increasing and decreasing pressure and how to minimize these risks.
AIDA 3 course consists of:
3 theory sessions
1 breathing and relaxation sessions
2 confined water sessions (usually swimming pool)
4 open water sessions
1 theory exam
Details of the course:
You will learn what happens to the body (and lungs) when the surrounding pressure becomes greater and how the body adapts to this (mammalian dive reflex).
You will learn more about equalization techniques and how to perform or master the Frenzel technique.
The confined water sessions (usually pool) will allow you to practice O2 and CO2 tables, learn training concepts for static and how to prepare a maximum attempt.
We will refine your swimming and diving technics, improve your streamlining position, and perform Frenzel equalisation efficiently while freediving. You will learn and practice the free falling and how to be very relax when performing a freedive at depth.
More rescue scnerarios at depth and on the surface will be practiced.
To successfully complete the AIDA 3 freediver course you will have to perform a 2 minutes 45 seconds breath-hold, swim 55m in Dynamic with fins and freedive to 24 meters in the Constant Weight discipline. At the end of the course you will be able to freedive comfortably with an experienced buddy to depths of 25/30 meters.
Amed, Bali is the perfect place to freedive. The ocean is warm, clear and blue. Tropical fishes come and visit us doing our sessions + there are some nice photo opportunities.
After diving you can treat yourself in one of the many restaurants offering everything from western to local Indonesian food.
