PADI Freediver training with Nemo Diving Center

If you’re interested in being a certified freediver and learning more breathing techniques, then the PADI Freediver course is just what you need. This course is composed of three main phases. The first phase is all about knowledge development which includes the basic swimming and breathing principles. You can begin the first phase at the comfort of your own home by signing up for the Freediving eLearning lessons from PADI.

Once you have studied the eLearning materials, our world-class instructors will accompany you to the Fujairah dive site for your actual freediver training which is the confined water session. By the end of the confined water session, you'll be able to last 90 seconds with static breath-holding and be able to safely dive 25 meters/80 feet underwater with dynamic apnea techniques. The last part is the open water sessions where you can practice free immersion and constant weight freedives (a goal of 10 meters/30 feet) with the addition of proper buddy procedures. Like the second phase, the training will be held at Fujairah with our instructors.

PADI Freediver pre-requisites

Interested participants should:

  • be at least 15 years old
  • be in good health
  • submit the PADI Medical History Form regarding medical conditions
  • pass a swimming and fitness assessment

How to start e-Learning

Once your payment has been settled, you can begin studying the e-Learning training materials. An email from PADI will be sent to you within 24 hours containing the redeem code which you can use to create your own account on the PADI website. This will give you access to the Freediver Manual or Freediver Touch app which contains sections of knowledge review, video materials, quizzes, and other interactive references. After passing the final exam, you’re ready for the in-water training.
