PADI Basic Free Diver Course

The PADI Basic Freediver course is a subset of the PADI Freediver course. It’s a great introduction to free diving, focusing on developing solid freediving skills. You learn basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool or confined water site. The PADI Basic Freediver course is the very first level of the four available PADI courses for freediving ( Basic FreeDiver, Freediver, Advanced Freediver and Master Freediver) It is a great first step for developing solid freediving skills.

What Is Involved

The PADI Basic Freediver Course consists of 2 basic parts:

The Freediver Theory, which can be done with the downloadable PADI Freediver Touch on a smartphone or tablet. The theory will cover the basic’s of what happens to your body when you are free diving and the pressure changes at depth. Along with plenty of tips on how to improve your apnea technics.

Confined Water Session – Pool where you will learn and develop your freediving technics that can then be applied to open water free diving. This will included breathing technics, proper buddy procedures, body positioning for freediving and rescue skills. Goal – static apnea of 90 seconds and dynamic apnea of 25 metres/80 feet.

Optional Open Water Dives* at least 1 dive in the open water where you will learn to dive deeper and start extending your personal limits (additional charge’s for this optional dive)

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Basic Freediver course you must be 12 years old or older. You need good swimming ability and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required however.

The Freediving Equipment You Use

In the PADI Basic Freediver course, you learn to use a mask, snorkel and fins, and may also use a wetsuit and weight belt. Using gear designed specifically for freediving is best, like low volume mask’s and free diving snorkel, however in this course, you may simply be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own.

The Learning Materials You Need

When you enrol in this course Aussie Divers Phuket will provide you with the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app (for use with a smartphone/tablet). The Touch is an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to study at your own pace.

Good news – the PADI Freediver Touch also includes all study materials for the PADI Freediver, Advanced Freediver and Master Freediver courses.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloat [...]
