AIDA Course Equivalencies

AIDA recognises that some students may already be qualified freedivers and certified by another agency and now wish to enrol on an AIDA course.

In recognition of this, AIDA has developed an equivalency table which recognizes the qualifications gained from other training agencies as equivalent to AIDA courses. These equivalencies are given below:
