AIDA Crossover Evaluation for AIDA 3 Advanced Freediver
All students who have been certified from another freediving organisation and wish to do an AIDA course will need to undergo an AIDA Crossover Evaluation to ensure they meet the AIDA prerequisites for the AIDA 3 Advanced Freediver course. This involves:
- Assessment of the level of knowledge of the student by means of passing the AIDA 2 Freediver written exam at 75% or higher. Allow a minimum of two hours for this assessment. Cost is $95.
- Assessment of the pool or confined water skills equivalent to the level of the AIDA 2 Freediver course. Allow two hours for this assessment. Cost is $95 for this component.
- Assessment of all ocean or open water skills equivalent to the level of the AIDA 2 Freediver course. This is typically one morning of about 4 hours including the boat trip to and from the dive site. Cost is $95 for this component.
Freediving Gold Coast charges a total $285 for this Crossover Evaluation. Though it is not mandatory to proceed to the AIDA 3 Advanced Freediver course, if you would like the AIDA 2 Freediver certification it is an additional $35 which is paid to AIDA International.

Clinton performs a “selfie” CWT dive to show one of the key skills of AIDA 3 – freefalling. The 31.8 metre dive was completed in 1 minute 23 seconds. The line was set to 30 metres but Clinton went past the tennis ball which indicates the 30 metre depth mark in this Youtube video.
