ABOUT RAID

RAID is the world’s fastest growing diver training agency with both full service and satellite regional offices, dive stores and instructors waiting to provide diver services to you across the globe. RAID is also the first diver training agency to offer a complete range of online diver academic programs from beginner to instructor examiner levels in snorkelling, SCUBA, CCR and freediving.

RAID has taken a new, and we believe, a far better approach, to diver training. It starts by ensuring we train great instructors and in so doing, we are literally rewriting diver training standards creating new benchmarks of excellence.

We feel this is essential to ensure divers in training are only exposed to highly skilled, truly experienced and extremely dedicated dive professionals.
At RAID we feel there are no short cuts to training.
