Molchanovs Freediving Education

Molchanovs Freediving Education can take you from learning the basics of freediving through to an elite competition freediver. There are four open water course levels, each of which is known as a Wave. All levels are also available as Lap courses. Lap courses cover the same theory and pool requirements as the corresponding Wave course but do not include open water sessions. Therefore, a Lap certification only certifies you to freedive in a pool. It does not certify you to freedive to depth in open water. You can easily convert a Lap certification to the corresponding Wave certification at a later date by adding the open water sessions.
