PADI ZERO TO HERO FREEDIVING PROGRAM

UPCOMING PADI FREEDIVER INSTRUCTOR CROSSOVER COURSE(S)

OCTOBER 18-19, 2019 – DAHAB, EGYPT

OVERVIEW

Are you tired of your daily routine and looking to make a change in your life? Thinking about changing your career and becoming a professional freediving instructor, but you have no experience? Then the PADI Zero to Hero Freediving Program is the program for you!

My team and I will bring you from being a beginner to being a competent freediver and then a certified PADI Freediver Instructor!

I offer flexibility in terms of duration of the training, anywhere from 3 month which can be extended to 6 months. (Note: there’s also a “Basic PADI Zero to Hero Program” option which is 3-4 weeks, however, this is not highly recommended, as it’s not likely you’ll have enough time / experience to pass all of the course requirements)

After completing your PADI Freediver Instructor Course you can decide to stay in Dahab and keep training / teaching / assisting on freediving courses. (We can discuss the various options when the time comes!)

LOCATION

The PADI Zero to Hero Freediving Program takes place in Dahab, Egypt – the mecca for freediving!

Dahab is an AWESOME place for freediving training at all levels! Not only can you train at any time of day, due to the shore access to depth (so you don’t need to follow a rigid boat schedule for training sessions) BUT you can do the Zero to Hero program any time of year!

Dahab is one of the few places in the world where you can freedive year-round!

Also the living costs in Dahab are very low! You can rent a fully furnished apartment starting at 200 euro per month, and food costs can be as low as 5-10 euros per day!

INSIDE THE PADI ZERO TO HERO FREEDIVING PROGRAM

The PADI Zero to Hero Freediving Program is a complete package that takes you from beginner freediver to PADI Freediver Instructor in minimum 3 months. The following courses and training are included:

  • PADI Freediver Course
  • PADI Advanced Freediver Course
  • PADI Master Freediver Course
  • 4 Weeks Master Program
  • Mouthfill Speciality Course
  • PADI Freediver Instructor Course

The training schedule over the 3 month period is as follows:

MONTH 1:

The PADI Freediver and PADI Advanced Freediver courses will be completed within the first 1-2 weeks. When the advanced course is completed, you’ll then start the master program, which is 4 weeks.

MONTH 2:

During your second month, you will finish your 4 week master program and also complete the PADI Master Freediver Course and Mouthfill Speciality course. During this time, the focus is on developing your skills as a freediver and becoming comfortable with depth as well as the pool disciplines.

The instructor (either myself or another freediving instructor on my team) will dive with you and work specifically on weak points in order to prepare you for becoming a freediving instructor.

MONTH 3:

During the third month, you will start assisting on PADI Freediver, Advanced Freediver and training sessions under an instructor supervision.

Slowly you’ll start seeing mistakes and giving feedback to real students. You’ll also carry on with your own training, together with me and my team.

MONTH 3-6:

When you and I both feel that the time has come, we will schedule your PADI Freediver Instructor Course. Then, once finished, you’ll have the chance to teach some real courses in order to leave as a confident and independent PADI Freediver Instructor.

PADI BASIC ZERO TO HERO FREEDIVING PROGRAM

It’s highly recommended that you sign-up for the full PADI Zero to Hero Freediving Program, so that you have enough time to become a competent and knowledgeable freediver and freediving instructor.

However, if you’re short on time, you can sign-up for the PADI Basic Zero to Hero Freediving Program. This is a 3 week fast-track freediving instructor program, which is the bare minimum you need to complete, as required by PADI, in order to become a PADI Freediver Instructor.

Just note, that you may not be able to complete all the course requirements within this time or you may not feel fully confident to start teaching freediving courses. In these cases you very well may need additional training sessions or return trips to Dahab to complete the program and to become a confident PADI Freediver Instructor.
