How is a Level 1 SSI Freediving course organised?
Your SSI Level 1 course can be completed in 2 days, but usually, we make it 2,5 days, so it’s a bit more relaxed. When you confirm your course with us, we’ll give you access to the course material which you can download in the free MySSI app. You can then start studying at home at your own pace, and be well prepared for the course.
When you arrive at the centre, your course will start with a ‘breathing for freedivers’ workshop where we’ll teach everything you need to know about the respiratory system, breathing, and breath-holding to safely freedive. We’ll then go into the pool where we teach you the basics of freediving and all necessary safety techniques. In this pool session, we’ll fully prepare you for the afternoon open water session where you’ll be diving on a training line.
On the second day, you start with body stretching, an open water session and again a pool session. In-between, we’ll do small workshops in the classroom, and you will have to do a multiple-choice exam.
On the 3rd da,y you have finished your course, and we’ll take you one more time into the ocean where most students chase a bit more depth – or complete the final requirements.
Every Level 1 course has at least two pool sessions and three open water sessions.
