The first professional level certification available for divers.
Working closely with a RAID Instructor or IT, this program expands your dive knowledge and hones your skills to a professional level. During the RAID Divemaster program, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study. You will complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems as well as help others improve their diving. You put this knowledge into action through a structured program and series of practical training exercises.
INSTRUCTOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The RAID IDP is an intense course for Dive Master and Assistant Instructors from all agencies to take the next step in their professional diving career and become Open Water instructors.
The IDP is designed to train qualified RAID Dive Masters or equivalent in the use of the RAID programs to teach the RAID Open Circuit programs from Open Water 20 through to Master Rescue Diver.
Once the IDP is completed, candidates will then qualify to attend a 2-day Instructor Examination which evaluates an instructor candidate’s teaching presentation abilities, academic knowledge, personal skill level, understanding of the RAID education and quality control system and their attitude and professionalism.
For certified diving instructors that have technical experience we offer instructor training for open circuit training up to the Deco 60.
Training is also offered for rebreathers up to Deco 60 for the AP Inspiration and Divesoft Liberty rebreathers.
