The Apnea Total Freediving Organization and Education System has grown and flourished around the world, with highly experienced Instructors establishing their own freediving centres offering Apnea Total courses from South America to the Caribbean, Asia and Europe. These Instructors have initially worked intensively at the Apnea Total headquarters in Koh Tao, certifying hundreds of students which has provided them with the knowledge and experience required to establish their own freediving centres. Students will receive the high standards of Apnea Total education and accreditation from the following centres.
