A child is taught to never dive without an adult present. Adults are taught to always supervise children with uninterrupted close attention, they are advised to take a first aid course, to learn rescue skills, and know the full numbers of local emergency services at their holiday location. A parent with freediving skills can supervise a child in a body of water deeper than 2 m, but if the adult does not have any freediving skills, they should not let their child in water deeper than 2 m without an adult freediver present.
Therefore Parents/Guardians are required to pass an exam on rules of supervision in order for their child to be certified.
