Freediving Instructor Course

Freediving Instructor

2 weeks


The Apnea Total Instructor course is designed for those who want to spread their passion for the sport with the finest education system available. The course consists of intensive personal workshops to develop your freediving knowledge, teaching skills and personal training techniques. In-water workshops develop Instructor Candidates’ training strategies with teaching simulations as well as practical sessions with actual students.

The Instructor Course lasts for a period of 2 weeks. Previous requirements are to complete the Apnea Total Master Freediver Course and to have assisted Apnea Total Instructors while teaching students for both the Freediver and Advanced Courses. There are also specific depth and stamina requirements. Following the completion of the 2 week Instructor Course, it is required to teach at least two Freediver Courses and two Advanced Courses under the guidance of the Apnea Total Master Instructor.

Our aim at Freedive Utila is to produce highly experienced Instructors who have all the required teaching skills and freedive knowledge to be successful in their Instructor career. We are proud to have the most challenging instructor prerequisites in the industry.

The Freedive Utila team will provide you with support, knowledge, and experience, as well as the possibility of employment at our training center in Utila or at other Apnea Total schools around the world, or even to establish your own freediving center with the support from the Apnea Total Headquarters in Koh Tao, Thailand.

Freedive Utila can conduct instructor courses as needed throughout the year.
