Do you want a quick taste or a long-term career? Choose RAID!
The benefits of choosing RAID as a training partner, from a half-day Try-Dive experience to the most complex cave diving or rebreather expedition, and everything in between.
The RAID logo means you’ll get quality attention regardless of how deeply you want to explore the underwater adventure zone.
THE RAID WAY
Our policy is that no diver graduates from a RAID diving program, uncomfortable doing the skills required to enjoy diving safely. Diving without proficiency in the essential skills is a high-risk activity. So there is no fudging competency, no sign-off when more work is needed. RAID pioneered several best practices in the scuba training world. NO kneeling on the bottom to demonstrate skills. And, proper gas management from open water onwards, for example.
Because of our stance, we have been called ‘harsh’ and our programs ‘unnecessarily difficult.’ We say that’s nonsense. Diving requires mastery of the basics. A step-by-step progression as divers work towards more complex goals. It’s simply a question of us working to help keep you as safe as possible and make you the best you can be.
Grow your comfort, build your confidence. Dive RAID
RAID professionals are closely vetted before earning their instructor status. And are some of the most respected in the dive industry. The benefit for you is peace-of-mind. Your safety and enjoyment are our top priorities.
We are extremely proud of our two-part QA program. We believe it helps us to ensure that we maintain the highest quality instructors. Giving the most comprehensive, enjoyable, and safe diving courses in the scuba industry.
Part one of our QA system is an automatic post-course survey in which each student must verify what they have done.
1) Demonstrated the required skills (listed)
2) Are comfortable doing them. If a student is not entirely satisfied, the system will not allow the instructor to certify the student until the issue is corrected.
Part two of the QA system is our QA panel. They are an important part of our training department. This panel consists of senior Instructor-trainers, experienced educators, and our risk management team.
Its job is to monitor RAID Dive Centres, instructors, and the courses they deliver; to make sure safe diving practices are followed. And that marine life and the underwater environment are respected and protected for this generation of divers, and those who we will train in the future.
