It is common and natural for self-taught freedivers or spearfishers (i.e. free divers that have never attended a free diving course, nor have they ever been certified by a free diving institute) to posses the know how and skills of a certain course level.
Our school respects the know how and skills of all self-taught freedivers and spearfishers.
Therefore the participation of self-taught freedivers or spearfishers in a course is allowed, as long as they already posses the skills of the previous (lower) course level.
If you belong in this category, you do not have to start from AIDA1 level.
Our Instructor will initially assess your skills and will suggest to you the next level up.
