Katabasis Freediving Instructor Course Italy

The FITC will show how to teach according to SSI teaching standards and how to organise courses for students to be able to issue SSI certificates through the MYSSI multimedia system. Being a good freediving instructor does not only mean being able to perform, but also being able to demonstrate; for this reason, every candidate instructor, regardless of level, is required to be able to perform the exercises proposed by the SSI freediving didactics in a demonstrative way for students.
During the FITC course, freediving  skills, basic and/or advanced compensation skills and assistance skills will be considered already acquired. Candidates will be assessed on their ability to demonstrate, disseminate, engage and enthuse in teaching. Basic notions of navigation will also be provided to manage a freediving boat for the transport of students.
