Completion of these workshops is required for NAUI Instructors who wish to teach freediving programs and courses. These instructor workshops provide comprehensive training using NAUI’s Freediving standards, which have been developed in partnership with Performance Freediving International (PFI). Graduates will be certified to teach a variety of freediving courses, including NAUI Snorkeler, NAUI Introduction to Freediving, Safe Buddy, Open Line Diving, Coaching Session, and NAUI Freediver.

Certification as a NAUI Intermediate Freediver (IFD) is a prerequisite for entry into the FIW. In an effort to ensure that all instructors meet this requirement, an IFD course has been established in conjunction with most FIWs. NAUI Instructors are welcome to attend any IFD course prior to attendance at the FIW. Check the NAUI Events page at for the scheduled NAUI Intermediate Freediver Course.

If a boat is required for open-water sessions, a boat fee may be applied in addition to the course tuition. A minimum of six students is required for a course to proceed. Submit your deposit and reserve your space now!
