You can alse need to have Emergency First Respons and Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. Yu can complete this training during the Rescue Diver Course.

  • Open water sessions to practice deeper free immersion and constant weight freedives, along with additional buddy procedures and rescue techniques. Goal - constant weight freedive of 20 metres/65 feet (15 metres/ 50 feet for freedivers younger than 18).
