Upgrade from Basic Freediver


[vc_row padding_top=”10″ padding_bottom=”0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]Having completed theory and the pool training and been awarded with Basic Freediver certification, you might want to upgrade it to PADI Freediver to be able to join the open water training sessions and fun dives.

To upgrade you will need to successfully complete 2 open water training dives in the course of 2 days.

Open Water Training Dives
During the open water sessions you will be able to put everything you have learned in theory into practice! On the first dive, with a maximum depth limit of 10 meters/30 feet, you will practice correct breathing techniques for open water free dive, perform a free dive to a maximum depth of 10 meters, and demonstrate a rescue for a buddy who simulates loss of motor control on the surface.

On the second freediving session, you will practice constant weight diving techniques for the maximum depth of 16 meters/50 feet, learn how to do safety for your buddy, and perform a rescue of a freediver who simulates blackout at 5 meters/15 feet. Congratulations, you are now fully qualified PADI Freediver, certified to freedive to a maximum depth of 16 meters with a buddy worldwide!

We also recommend doing at least one optional fun dive, during which you can not only explore the wonders of the underwater world of Tioman and meet the local fishes but also apply the skills you learned during the training dives in the new setting of freediving for fun![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
