Take a Molchanovs Instructor Course

And Teach Pure Performance Freediving and Training!

Running Molchanovs Instructor Courses Made so Much Sense!

Adding the Molchanovs freediving programs to our center has been a very exciting process for all of us involved.

You now see all the big freediving centers in the world moving over from the traditional freediving agencies towards Molchanovs, which is not for no reason. It is financially very interesting being a Molchanovs instructor or dive center, but also, the Molchanovs systems are about pure freediving. It’s an in-depth training system developed by some of the best, if not, the best freedivers in the world.

If you want to train all-around high-level freedivers, Molchanovs for sure is the option to go with. No other agency in the world offers such a complete and comprehensive training and education system as Molchanovs. The Molchanovs Training Systems are developed to make you the best freediver and freediving instructor you can be.

Vincent Sparreboom in Panglao

Develop yourself and Experience the Real Flip Flop Lifestyle!

Who knew that changing your life could be so much fun!

When we came to Panglao in 2015, we knew that we landed in paradise. Not just because the island is green, covered by palm, coconut, papaya and banana trees. But Panglao is an incredible island with the most incredible ocean with year-round near perfect conditions, and of course, the Filipinos are the most friendly people you’ll ever meet in your life.

Now it was up to us to complete it all and provide our guests with a fantastic dive center, perfectly suited for teaching freediving courses, freedive training and hosting professional development programs. The freediving center itself is only a few years old – it was built along the access road to our first dive center here in Panglao, so we saw the building being build. The building has three large classrooms, and each of them is fully equipped with all the possible tools and gadgets to teach freediving. On the ground floor, we have the reception area, kitchen, retail store and living room area where are students hang out, watch movies and play board games.

Via the backdoor, in the academy, you access the outside terras with bamboo canopy with the large lounge area, gym equipment and stretching and yoga area. Right in the middle of the back area, you’ll find a super nice two-lane 25-meter pool with dedicated static for your daily static training. All pool-side we have five luxury bamboo bungalows – three more bungalows will be built at the end of 2020 in the low season while we will also further develop a big outside terras for a restaurant we are planning to open later this year too. The dive area, the sports resort, the terraces, and the academy are all designed and made to create this fantastic home for freedivers.

But it’s not only the freediving center which is ‘as good as it gets’, but freediving in the Philippines, Napaling Reef and the ocean here, and of course Panglao and its province Bohol are incredible too. When you travel to Panglao, you immediately notice that Panglao is a beautiful green island with long and wide roads, enclosed by lots of greens which makes cruising around fantastic. When you drive around here on your scooter, in the cool mornings, in your shorts and flips flops you immediately experience the flip-flop freediver lifestyle. The island has excellent high-end facilities and restaurants and offers cheap but good quality, long-term stay housing.

 

Freediving and Training don’t get better than this!

We change and gear up at the center, jump on our scooters for about 300 meters until we reach the ocean entry. We dive at Napaling reef with the Bohol sardine school. Just 10 meters from shore, we have a 25-meter coral wall that instantly drops to hundreds of meters depth. It’s so nice and convenient diving without a boat, at times that we want to go in, without the need to keeping track of what others want. We have fixed lines ready for you at -50, -80 and -130 meters for the truly brave. With year-round near-perfect diving conditions, freediving doesn’t get better than this. The water temperature ranges from 26 – 31C, and the visibility is usually around 30 meters and goes up to an easy 40 meters – we even had a few 50 meter days! With year-round excellent diving conditions, diving without a boat at any moment, we can be very flexible and plan our freedive training wisely.

At Napaling reef, although rare, we also get the occasional big visitors like blue whales, grey whales, pilot whales and of course, we regularly have whale sharks and mantas. If we don’t see any of the big ones, no worries, we always have fish around the lines. We have, of course, the sardines, but we’ll see schools of barracudas, napoleon fish, jackfish, and the occasional turtles.

The convenience and location of the center, the experienced instructor team, of course, Panglao, and the ocean here at 300 meters from the shop where we dive without a boat – combine this all with a personalised package for your instructor course and training, and you simply can’t go wrong with the Freedive Academy.

 

This is how it is to freedive in Panglao!

Please note; this video was shot at our first location. We still dive at the same reef, but we moved about 300 meters down the road to a brand-new and fully equipped dive center with bungalows and our very own two-lane 25-meter pool.

We Run Molchanovs Instructor Courses almost Every Month!

We are a big freediving center with a great facility, premium freediving gear, a fantastic team at one of the best diving locations in the world. This recipe for success made us a fully developed and complete freedive development center. Not only are we certifying new Molchanovs instructors almost every month but are we capable of offering great packages at a low price and personalised with the things you need. We package the ‘standard’ zero to hero freediving program, freediving internship or freedive instructor course with, for example, extra freedive training, accommodation, pickups, a swim teacher course, or additional tours. We’ll make sure that you get the package that you need. These are the freediving packages we can offer you.

Why Should you Choose to become a Molchanovs Instructor!

When we started in Panglao in 2015, we first choose to focus on SSI primarily. We only ran SSI freedive instructor courses, SSI freediving courses, some AIDA freediving courses, and occasionally with freelance instructors; we hosted an AIDA Instructor Course. Choosing SSI was a great decision – still one of the best business decisions so far. But with the growing popularity of the Molchanovs systems, the development of their training community, we found a big hole in the packages we could offer.

SSI has a massive dive center network and is an excellent option if you want to work for a freediving center or start your own dive center. With Molchanovs, you can work anywhere in the world as an independent freediving instructor without the need of being affiliated with a dive center. These are similar conditions as AIDA international has, but Molchanovs has a fantastic community, a fun and challenging reward system via digital badges, and Molchanovs keeps your customers engaged by offering free training.

Molchanovs Instructor Centre

The operating cost of being an active Molchanovs instructor is by far the lowest in the industry, while their training systems are by far the most developed, and they offer by far the most value of all the different freediving agencies. You really can not go wrong by becoming a Molchanovs Freediving Instructor.

The Molchanovs Wave Instructor Courses!

You want to become a Molchanovs Open Water Instructor? You start here!

The Molchanovs Freediving System is known for delivering pure freediving, high-level skills and performance freediving. This applies to the recreational Molchanovs freediving courses but also for the instructor levels. Molchanovs has the ‘toughest’ performance requirements in the industry.

Even though they are the most challenging in the industry, we believe that anyone with the right guidance, structure and training plans can become a Molchanovs instructor. We believe that the performance requirements should not be a selection criteria in choosing the right freediving instructor agency.

When you completed the SSI Level 3, AIDA 4* or Molchanovs Wave 3 course and are not yet a freediving instructor, but you want to join the Molchanovs movement, this Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor Course is the right choice.

To start, the student must have a valid CPR, First Aid and Oxygen Provider certificate, and a medical statement not older than one year. The First Aid course and the medical can all be done in Panglao but must be completed before the course. And finally, the candidate has to have a minimum age of 18 years.

 

Open Water Teaching Starts with the Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor Level

You can either do the full course, the combo package or a cross-over! The Molchanovs Wave 2 course is the first open water freediving course that’s available via a full course or a cross over package. If you want to do a cross over towards Molchanovs, make sure you have the right certification. For example, the SSI Level 1 Freediving Instructor or a PADI Advanced Freediving Instructor can’t cross over since you need to be an SSI Level 2 or PADI Master Instructor.

Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor Certificate

Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor Training Course

The Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor can teach Wave 1 and 2 Courses, Lap 1 and 2 courses and guide Base Level 1 to 4 programs.

Prerequisites: The candidate must have a Wave 3 Certification or passed the Wave 3 Crossover Evaluation and have a First Aid Certificate (no older than 2 years).

SSI Molchanovs Instructor Package

The SSI Level 2 & Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor Combo

It doesn't matter if you do a Zero to Hero, a freediving internship or an instructor course with training; with the SSI Level 2 Freedive Instructor & Molchanovs Instructor Course combo, you get the best of two worlds!

SSI has the biggest dealer network globally and offers fantastic support to instructors and dive centers. The SSI courses, both the recreational and professional level courses, are very well built, structured and teach you so much more than just freediving or how to teach freediving. At the same time, Molchanovs is pure freediving, focusing on technique and skills while you can work anywhere and independently without being affiliated to a center. It is not strange that this combo package is so popular!

Do note; this is not a 2-in-1 course - you won't get 2 certifications with one course! The SSI and Molchanovs Instructor courses have different objectives, and therefore it is impossible to certify you twice for one course.

We will start with the SSI Instructor Course and develop you into the dive professional you were meant to be - no other instructor course develops dive professionals like the SSI Instructor Course. With SSI, you will learn how to teach freediving and what it means to be a dive professional. After the SSI Instructor course, we take 2 days off and start with the Molchanovs Instructor cross-over. Because we already add things like skills video review to the SSI course and add the in-water performance requirements of Molchanovs to the SSI course, we can add more value to the courses, run both course more efficient and thus can do the cross over in a shorter time frame and thus cheaper. This is one fantastic and compact package for both certificates! Truly the best of both worlds.

Price without package discount per person: $1650

Please note that the above price is not including the mandatory ~$400 SSI fees for the SSI annual and registration fee, the Freedive Instructor Kit Level 1, the SSI Level 2 Upgrade Kit, and the wet slates. Also, the first year annual fee to become an active Molcanovs Instructor needs to pay directly to Molchanovs. This is currently set to $100 per year for the independent instructor.

The Freedive Academy Instructor Course Schedule

We run SSI and Molchanovs instructor courses pretty much every month now!

We can start the recreational Molchanovs Wave 1 and 2 courses any day of the week and run them multiple times a week. The Level 3 or Wave 3 is already more difficult to schedule since we only have a few instructors capable of teaching these levels. We run the Level 3 courses usually two times a month. The same goes for the instructor courses – there are even fewer instructors capable of teaching these, and add to this that there are fewer students in each course, and thus we need to schedule the courses carefully. This makes it necessary that you join an already scheduled course or book your trip very early so we can set the course according to your dates.

It is very important that you schedule your trip wisely. The same applies to the internships and Zero to Hero freediving programs. Although you can come earlier or leave later, your freediving internship and Zero to Hero is also scheduled around your instructor course. If you do ‘only’ an instructor course with us, arriving in Panglao the day before your course starts is not uncommon but makes it very challenging. We highly recommend coming at least one week before your course, so you have time to adjust from travelling and get into the rhythm of training.

Please feel free to contact us anytime with any scheduling questions you may have.

Freedive Academy Update: as you can imagine, COVID-19 and the Philippines' lockdown since March 2020 messed up our instructor course schedule quite a bit. As of now (June 2021), the only instructor courses scheduled and confirmed in Panglao are the Swim Teacher course in August and the SSI React Right Instructor program. If you are still in Panglao, feel free to stop by with any questions you might have.

For those not in Panglao, we are currently only running online Molchanovs Instructor Crossovers and upgrades. We run them almost every two weeks now so. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.

Below you will find an overview of all our upcoming instructor courses.

Please note, the above courses are happening, but we still might be able to move them one or two days.

Since we live in uncertain times, we don't have a yearly schedule (yet). We are not scheduling courses too far in advance and prefer to run them by booking. When you're ready to plan your trip - or online cross over course, contact us. Our support team - who are all freedivers too - is ready to answer all of your questions. They know exactly the seats available for the FITC's, and they know the dates of the Level 3 courses. Since we run many Level 1 and 2 courses each month, we don't have to schedule those. The Level 3 courses need to be scheduled somewhat in advance too.

We run the Molchanovs Wave 2 Freediving Instructor courses and SSI & Molchanovs Instructor Course Combo’s pretty much every two months. Usually, we teach them in English. Dutch is possible too, and if you prefer another language, please contact us since we also regularly work with translators.

Are you ready to upgrade from Molchanovs Wave 2 Instructor?

Becoming a Molchanovs Wave 3 Instructor requires Dedication, Focus and Strenght!

You have been teaching Wave 1 and 2 freediving courses for about a year now, you have a good number of certifications under your belt. Then it’s time to take your Instructor capabilities to the next level.

For most freediving instructors, whether they work as independent instructors, working for a dive center or have their own dive center, the next logical step would be to upgrade to Molchanovs Wave 3 Instructor. Our Wave 3 courses are very popular, and seeing the growth and development of the Molchanovs Movement not upgrading to Wave 3 Instructor would be a missed opportunity.

Molchanovs offers a Complete Range of Pool Certificates.

Whether you are a Recreational or Professional Pool Freediver, Molchanovs got you covered!

We are very lucky diving at Napaling reef every day with our drop off, the sardines of Panglao and Bohol and all the marine life we have around our training lines. Molchanovs supports our friends in Europe, Russia and other colder parts of the world where they don’t have direct access to the ocean or warmer waters.

The other freediving agencies have one pool level. Molchanovs has four different levels called the Lap 1, Lap 2, Lap 3 and Lap 4. The Lap courses are based on the structure and knowledge of the Wave open water courses but without the open water parts. The cool thing about this system is that when you are a certified Lap 2 or Lap 3 freediver, you go on vacation, complete the open water requirements, you will be immediately certified Wave 2 or 3. There is no need to start with the Wave 1 but can immediately cross over to the equivalent open-water level.

We don’t teach them often since we have the most fantastic ocean at about 300 meters from us, but if you are interested in becoming a Lap Instructor, please feel free to contact us. We’ll be more than happy to explain the different options and possibilities.

Molchanovs Logo Black

Molchanovs Lap 2 and 3 Instructor Courses

The Molchanovs Lap courses are the pool equivalents of the Wave courses, which are the open-water courses of the Molchanvs Training System.

As with the recreational Lap courses, a Lap Instructor can cross over to Molchanovs Wave Instructor once the open water performance requirements have been met.
