Since PFI is global, we have instructors all over the world. As our list of instructors grows internationally, rest assured that you’re working with instructors of the highest caliber who adhere to the strictest industry training standards and methods. We strongly believe in what we educate, ensuring all of our instructors have routine check-ins and are actively participating in ways to further their safety education. Please read more about how PFI is the leading freediving source for educational standards, safety, and physical and case studies here. 

PFI’s training philosophy and goals are summed up in its original motto: Safety through Education. 

Look at your safety. Are you the safest you can be? If not, fix it. The more you learn, the safer you will be. A safe diver is a good diver--with safety at the forefront, you can truly enjoy the amazing experiences and challenges that freediving brings into your life. 


All students who sign up for any PFI course are automatically enrolled in DAN (Divers Alert Network) liability and medical coverage for 25,000 dollars USD. This is completely inclusive and requires NO extra paperwork or cost. The coverage is for any scuba or breath-hold activities both in and out of water. Included for the term of the course or 180 days, whichever comes first.
