Freediving Education Agency Unveils Automated Student Certification

Pompano Beach, FL — World Record Freediver, Martin Stepanek, has taken another step forward, in his goal to teach everyone how to freedive. The founder of Freediving Instructors Internationl (F.I.I.) Stepanek, and his partner Niki Roderick, have been specializing in certification courses designed to provide recreational freediving techniques across a range of breath-hold activities including spearfishing, DPV freediving, animal interactions and more. F.I.I. has just unveiled a new website that offers its instructors an online automated student certification service among other advanced support opportunities.  This update will help to meet the needs of FII’s rapidly expanding international and domestic instructor base. 

No other freediving certification and training agency offers students and instructors the same support and high level of training materials such as our teaching scripts, skill guidelines, and instructional videos. This, now combined with our new online automated student certification service, FII is unparalleled in modern freediving education” said Stepanek. The new website release also coincides with the launch of it’s new FII Junior Freediver (JNF) certification course.  This exciting new program has been created with grade school teaching professionals to be both digestible and fun for a new generation of freedivers between the ages of 12-15 years.
