AIDA Crossover Evaluation for Assistant Instructor / AIDA 4 Master Freediver
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 Assistant Instructor/AIDA 4 Master Freediver course. This involves:
Assessment of the level of knowledge of the student by means of passing the AIDA 3 Advanced Freediver written exam at 75% or higher. Allow two hours for this assessment. Cost is $95.
Assessment of the pool or confined water skills equivalent to the level of the AIDA 3 Advanced Freediver course. Allow about two hours for this assessment. Cost is $95.
Assessment of all ocean or open water skills equivalent to the level of the AIDA 3 Advanced Freediver course. This is typically one morning of about 4 hours including the boat trip to and from the dive site. Cost is $95.
Freediving Gold Coast charges $285 for this Crossover Evaluation. Though it is not mandatory to proceed to the AIDA 4 Master Freediver course, if you would like the AIDA 3 Advanced Freediver certification it is an additional $35 which is paid to AIDA International.
