AIDA 3* advanced freediver
The AIDA 3* advanced freediver course builds on the skills learned in the AIDA 2* freediver course. The aim of this course is to further develop your freediving skills and knowledge, which are necessary to independently plan freediving activities. The skills covered in this course include for example freefall, frenzel equalization technique, training tables, the risks of increasing and decreasing pressure during depth sessions and how best to minimize these. You gain this knowledge and skills through a number of theory sessions, confined and open water sessions.
