The AIDA 1* freediver intro course is comparable to a first introduction to freediving. Through a theory session you gain basic knowledge about important skills and concepts. Then you will be introduced to the practice of static and dynamic freediving in the pool or a sheltered open water. You practice basic skills to hold your breath in a safe and comfortable way. In-depth sessions are not part of the course, for this you can follow the AIDA 2* course.

You must be at least 12 years old to participate in the introduction. You also have sufficient swimming skills and you are in good physical condition. It is not necessary to have experience with snorkeling or other (under) water sports.
