Courses

Farrworld presents the diver with a unique training programme of global application. While many of the techniques employed in the overhead environment find direct application in wreck and ice diving, the Farrworld training is generally restricted to caves and mine workings. These programmes are highly respected and certification is recognised worldwide.

Remember that old adage:
If you can dive in the UK you can dive anywhere in the world. (In 2017 we are also regularly running courses and guided trips in the south of France)

Various techniques are discussed. Divers will require their own regulator to fit the stage unit, i.e. they will need three well maintained regs and contents gauges.

Prerequisites: Full Cave certification
Duration: Two Days
Location: France
Price: £410

Cave Guiding Opportunities:

If you are interested in a week in the south of France savouring some of the very best cave diving sites in Europe please enquire directly with Farrworld. At present these trips are restricted to open circuit divers who have previously trained to Full Cave certification with us. Please enquire if you are certified with another agency as we can be flexible.

Apart from safety our prime consideration is client satisfaction.

Diving and caving are, above all, recreational activities. Just because the content is of a serious nature does not mean that students are not allowed to enjoy themselves!
