The PFI Safe Buddy program was designed by PFI to create a platform upon which its students and customers, certified or not, could learn about the safety procedures, rescue techniques and risk management methods which accompany safe freediving practices. This program was designed by PFI with the intention of helping increase safety awareness during recreational breath-holding/freediving activities. This course focuses solely on the safety and problem management for apnea training along with near blackout (Loss of Motor Control etc.) and blackout management. It does not include instruction for any freediving or breath-hold techniques as does the PFI Freediver courses.
