PADI Freediver Instructor Trainer Course

There is something quite mesmerising about entering the underwater world on your own terms and only for as long as your breath will allow you. Not only does freediving allow you to extend your personal limits in a gentle manner, but it also encourages you to learn inward control, discipline and power.

Freediving has become an increasingly popular and powerful way to explore the depths of the ocean floor. If  you have ever wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, without equipment and on a single breath, then freediving is for you! 

In May and for the second time ever, the PADI Freediver Instructor Trainer Course was completed in Cebu, Philippines. The program was hosted by the PADI Asia Pacific team but also had global representation amongst both staff and candidates. This international program bought together 15 candidates from 6 different countries, with presentations being translated into 5 different languages.

During the course, candidates learned about instruction and learning theory, psychology of counselling and evaluation techniques, risk management and marketing. Furthermore, each candidate also completed several teaching assignments and assessments in the classroom, confined water and open water. The program was supported logistically by PADI Freediver Instructor Trainer, Do Yen Kim and staff from Poseidon Cebu. The course also featured a guest speaker presentation by PADI Freediver Instructor Trainer Jean-Pol (JP) Francois from Freediving Planet Moalboal.

Speaking about the event, PADI Territory Director Thomas Knedlik said:

The PADI Freediver Instructor Trainer program brought together experienced PADI Master Freediver Instructors from around the globe. It has been incredible to witness the transformation of several national and international Freediving champions, all of whom with extensive experience teaching the PADI Freediver program, leaving the program with the required skills and knowledge to teach the popular PADI Freediver Instructor Course. The tremendous growth in demand for the courses that were released by PADI in 2015 will ensure these new PADI Freediver Instructor Trainers will have plenty of work and the unmatched marketing and business support provided by PADI will help to support the growth of the Freediving industry in its entire.”
