PADI Freediver Instructor Orientations


PADI has just released the dates for the next two PADI Freediver Instructor Orientations, accessible online and in person. The PADI Freediver Instructor Orientation is for current freediving instructors certified through other organizations than PADI, who are not already Teaching status PADI OWSIs or higher.

Upon completion of the orientation program you will be certified as a PADI Freediver Instructor, PADI Advanced Freediver Instructor, or PADI Master Freediver Instructor depending on what freediver instructor certification levels you hold with the other organization. The in-person instructor orientation is a half-day event followed in some locations by an optional in-water skills workshop.
