Total class cost is $800. This is a four day class, running Saturday to Tuesday.

After registering you will receive and email with additional information about the class as well as a link to pay your balance. Course manual will be provided at the beginning of class.
What to do to prepare for the class? Before the class, checkout the 'EQ 101' article on my blog (https://www.socalspearit.com/single-post/2018/05/07/Equalizing-Your-Ears-101). Some students find it very beneficial to do a little bit of ear homework before the class. Equalizing ability (not breathhold!) is the most common limiting factor for students when it comes to ocean work.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS: AS A CONDITION OF PARTICIPATION IN THE CLASS, ALL STUDENTS MUST UNDERGO A CORONAVIRUS TEST WITHIN 4 DAYS OF CLASS START, AND SUBMIT PROOF OF NEGATIVE RESULT TO INSTRUCTOR, WHO WILL ALSO BE TAKING A CORONAVIRUS TEST. NO EXCEPTIONS. IN ADDITION, INDIVIDUALS (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND FIRST RESPONDERS USING PPE) HAVING CONTACT WITH ANYONE TESTING POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS WITHIN 14 DAYS OF CLASS START WILL BE UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASS. As always, participation in any class activity is voluntary. By registering and participating in this class you hereby acknowledge that strict social distancing procedures may be impossible to follow during a normal freediving certification class such as this, and despite best efforts of instructors and vendors you assume any and all risk of contracting a communicable disease such as Covid - 19. Free tests are available from the State of California, please plan ahead and make time for this as you may need to schedule it a day or two before taking it, and results can take a day or two, although often are available the next day. Instant result tests are available from various vendors and most clinics throughout the city, for a fee. Class size is limited to 6 students plus instructor, Lance Lee Davis.
