To enroll in an AIDA course, you must be at least 16 years old and physically fit to freedive, as indicated by the AIDA Medical Medical Statement. Since the AIDA Education system is based on a gradual progression both in performance, in-water ability but also in theoretical knowledge, each course builds on the knowledge you learned in the previous level. It is, therefore, necessary to have successfully completed the previous level in order to enroll in a subsequent AIDA Course. The more advanced courses (AIDA 4* freediver and AIDA Instructor) also require the student to be certified in First AID/CPR.
