Your freediving journey starts with a self-guided online study followed by a one-hour Zoom class. As soon as you sign up, you will receive an e-learning code through email. Once you're done, you can schedule your one-hour Zoom info session with an instructor to learn equalization techniques, safety skills, equipment, etc. Note: The theory class is a required pre-requisite for the Confined and Open Water courses. Please, register at least one week prior to the Confined Water session.
STUDENT RESCHEDULE AND CANCELLATIONS To maintain reasonable pricing for the certification classes, and to promote respect and fairness to your fellow freedivers' time and efforts, we have a strict cancellation policy: A cancellation two or more weeks prior to a class: refund of the tuition fee minus $25 administration fee. A cancellation less than 10 days before the class - No refund, but credit for a future class with $50 administration fee. A cancellation less than 72 hours before the class / NO SHOW - No refund, No credit except with proof of a medical or family emergency; in such a case, credit for a future class is allowed with $50 administration fee. CHICAGO FREEDIVING CANCELLATIONS There are times when it is not safe to dive due to adverse weather conditions (like thunderstorms, strong winds, extreme temperature, etc.) When a class is canceled due to weather or other circumstances beyond Chicago Freediving instructor control we try our best to accommodate the needs of the students. We offer the option to pay $25 in order to hold a dive spot in upcoming class (as the numbers permit). When the availability is open you are welcome to pay the $25, and join for any open water class you need in order to complete your certifications.
