Apnea Academy learning course’s mission is to provide step by step support to every person interested in discovering the underwater world of free diving. Starting from the first approach to free diving with the Apnea Discovery course (this course differs from a standard snorkeling course, covering techniques of relaxation and breathing which are now included in the courses of modern free-diving), to the highest level of the program, the Instructor’s course, Apnea Academy helps, at every stage, to identify one’s limits to dive safely underwater still maintaining the unsurpassed feeling provided by free-diving. Only the most motivated and competent people have been selected by Apnea Academy as instructors to provide superior know how and experience to beginners.
Each course consists of theoretical lessons, swimming pool training, relaxation and breathing techniques and open water tests.
Once the course is completed and subject to the favourable evaluation from the instructor, an Apnea Academy Award will be issued to the student.
Apnea Academy Stage is an intensive training course which length and intensity will vary from time to time. The stage will include sea dives both on constant and variable weight, static and dynamic tests in the pool, breathing and relaxation techniques and theoretical lessons. Every student can attend this stage.
Apnea Discovery is addressed to whoever wants to test freediving underwater with minimum equipment, still learning relaxation and breathing techniques and to “look inside himself” searching for the wellness provided by free diving and to discover , in harmony with the environment, the marvelous underwater world, made of lights and colours found no where else.
'Indoor freediver' is the first course that AA has fully developed in the pool.
The goal is to let the student discover the good feelings that only apnea can give with the correct management of breathing and relaxation but also the development of sensitivity in water, by listening to your body, to discover the pleasure to dissolve in the liquid that surrounds and become one with the water.
Apnea Academy First Level represents the first approach to free-diving with the complete basic equipment. The objective of this course is to reach controlled free-diving by applying relaxation and breathing techniques in order to reach the following performances: 1’15” static apnea, 25 m in dynamic and 8 m in dept.
Apnea Academy Second Level is to improve the relaxation and breathing techniques by taking advantage of the experience acquired in the first level in order to reach following performances: 2’30” in static, 50 m dynamic and 15 m depth.
Apnea Academy Third Level is the highest award for a free diver. By improving the ability to operate in the water, mental and technical training, the free diver will be able to reach 3’ static, 70 m dynamic and 25 m depth.
