AIDA Crossover Evaluation for Instructor
All students who have been certified from another freediving organisation will need to undergo an AIDA Crossover Evaluation to ensure they meet the AIDA prerequisites for the Instructor course. This involves:
- Assessment of the level of knowledge of the student by means of passing the AIDA 4 Advanced Freediver written exam at 75% or higher. Allow 2 hours for this assessment.
- Assessment of the pool or confined water skills equivalent to the level of the AIDA 4 Master Freediver course. Allow two hours for this assessment.
- Assessment of all ocean or open water skills equivalent to the level of the AIDA 4 Advanced Freediver course. This is typically one morning of about 5 hours including the boat trip to and from the dive site.
Freediving Gold Coast charges $299 for this Crossover Evaluation. Though it is not mandatory to proceed to the Instructor course, if you would like the AIDA 4 Master Freediver certification it is an additional $35 which is paid to AIDA International. The first step is to come out on one of our Deep Dive Days so we can get an idea of your capabilities.
