Virgil was a great instructor, showing patience with the different challenges each student brought to him, encouraging to push ourselves inside our limits, respecting our comfort zones. His calmness and positivity was contagious.

Excellent course! Excellent instructor! Excellent workbook! Excellent pool and ocean dive sessions! Plus, I made it to 66 ft and I had fun doing it! I highly recommend this course to anyone who want a professional course that covers technique, safety and equipment taught by an instructor who clearly loves freediving and sharing it with his students! Well done!

I took my Freediver Level 1 at Rocky Point. New York. The instructor (Dean McCormick) was very attentive and explicit. Safety was on highest level. Even though it was a group course how ever I Dean was able to give attention to every student. Highly recommend this course.

Rarely have I taken a course in any field where the instructor was as good as my FII Level 1 instructor Oliver Haroun (and his wife Joi, who did a great job assisting through parts of our training). Oliver was a pleasure to work with, very well-versed in the subject matter, understanding of the challenges new divers face in processing all of the information related to freediving, and a great ambassador for the sport. I certainly plan to dive again with Oliver in the future and highly recommend him to anyone considering taking a freediving course.

After doing a little bit of research online, I am extremely happy I decided to sign up for the FII Level 1 Freediver course with Oliver Haroun. The course is structured nicely, beginning with a brief introduction to the sport followed by safety and the physiology and specific techniques utilized. Oliver definitely knows his stuff, making the classroom, pool, and open water session enjoyable. From the start, he found out what our interests and motivations in taking the course were so that he could best cater it to us. His experience with the sport and teaching made me feel very comfortable pushing my mind and body throughout the two days. With 3 students in our class, Oliver was able to provide us with individual assistance and guidance. He helped us to pinpoint specific techniques to work on to help us work toward our potential. I had an amazing experience with this course and would recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about the sport!
