Corso Istruttori SSI Freedivng Katabasis

During the FITC you will be shown how to teach using the SSI syllabus and how to organise courses for students in order to issue SSI certificates. Demonstrative ability: Being a good Instructor is not only about being able to teach, but also about knowing how to demonstrate …that’s why in addition to performances, which permit a numerical and objective representation of his or her abilities, each candidate is requested to clearly and precisely demonstrate the relevant training exercises and skill for each and every level.
During the FITC course all candidates will be treated as high-level freedivers, therefore freediving abilities associated with evolved compensation and assistance will be expected. The evaluation of the candidates will be made on their ability to demonstrate slowly and in an emphasized fashion what is requested in both the exercises and the standards maintained by the teaching agency. Basic navigation concepts will also be provided to manage a boat used for the transport of students. Candidates will be evaluated upon their ability of demonstrating
