It is addressed at certified Freediving Level 2** / ADVANCED FREEDIVER divers who wish to delve into more advanced techniques and specialized knowledge and dive deeper safely.

The purpose of the training seminar and the trainers is for the participants to acquire specialized knowledge on advanced techniques of freediving and equalization of pressures in the middle ear, to deepen the physiology of the human body and the methods of relaxation and respiration, and self-concentration.

Gaining this experience, you will be able to plan and organize excursions and excursions of a group of freedivers with confidence and safety. This seminar is the cornerstone for the further development of the amateur free diver into a professional freediving instructor.

At the end of the seminar, you will be able to hold your breath for at least 3min and 30 sec, do a dynamic apnea of 75 meters, and dive to depths of up to 30 meters with comfort and safety. You will also have the opportunity to try the technique of alternating weights, and you will gain great comfort in freediving with the technique of Free Immersion.


The theoretical part of this program, which includes at least sixteen lessons of one hour and takes place in the FreedivingWW auditorium or online through a particular platform, analyzes all that helpful information that will prepare participants for their upcoming free diving in the pool and sea.

 The subjects taught include:

  • Specialized Breathing Techniques
  • Specialized Diving Techniques
  • Specialized Free Diving equipment and specialized auxiliary equipment for the pool and open sea
  • Physics of freediving
  • Advanced physiology of free diving and physiopathology
  • Upper respiratory tract anatomy and advanced middle ear pressure equalization techniques / Natural equalization methods (BTV)
  • Diving response and effects of the marine environment on human body (Diving Response)
  • Diving reflex on the human body (Mammalian Dive Reflex)
  • Free diving and decompression sickness (DCS)
  • Hypoxia-Loss of consciousness (LMC-BO)
  • Physical conditioning for free diving and introduction to the freediving training approach
  • Introduction to pulmonary stretching and preparation of the lungs for deep diving
  • Advanced relaxation and self-concentration techniques
  • Risks and safety precautions
  • Diving buddy practice in freediving (Buddy system)
  • First Aid in a diving accident and procedures flow chart
  • Local diving legislation

Subsequently, in the practical part of the training seminar, the participants, through the corresponding visits in the pool and the sea, perform a predetermined series of customized exercises to lay the right foundations and experiences in the following subjects:

  • Advanced relaxation and self-concentration techniques
  • Preparation and recovery breathing techniques
  • Static Apnea (STA)
  • Dynamic Apnea (DYN)
  • Diving technique – body posture
  • Finning technique
  • Underwater propulsion
  • Advanced middle ear pressure equalization techniques/introduction in Natural equalization methods (BTV)
  • Accelerated Free Fall
  • Constant weight diving (CWT)
  • Free immersion diving (FIM)
  • Introduction in variable weights diving (VWT)
  • Equalization speed development
  • Risks and safety measures
  • Diving buddy practice in freediving (Buddy system)
  • Diver rescue protocol from a depth of 10 meters
  • Muscle and lung stretching session (Full body and lung stretching session)
