Freediving UAE offers AIDA (the Worldwide Federation for breath-hold diving) courses because we believe they set the standard in international freediving education.

The AIDA educational ladder supports your development as a freediver all the way from beginner to instructor level.

You can enter the AIDA education ladder either at the Level I or Level II depending on how comfortable you feel in the water. See below for detailed information on all of our courses.

If you are a first time freediver use our Course Selection Wizard opposite to find the best place to start and our next course.

If you are already a qualified freediver use the Course Selection Wizard to find out which AIDA course your freediving qualification is equivalent to and the next available course.
