PADI Freediver Instructors can be found by contacting your nearest PADI Dive Centre. They will have their own in-house PADI Freediver Instructors available to start your training, or alternatively, find a PADI Freediver Instructor on your behalf. Once you're enrolled on a PADI Freediver course, get the PADI Freediver Touch tablet app. The Touch is an interactive study tool that gives you the background information you need to freedive safely and allows you to learn at your own pace. Your PADI Freediver Instructor will check on your progress and make sure you understand important freediving information.
In the PADI 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, however, in this course, you may be able to use snorkeling equipment you already own.
