In order to be a good diver you first need to be able to look after yourself and then be able to help other if needed. The RAID Master Rescue Diver course is a must for all experienced divers and in particular those who wish to take responsibility for the safety of other divers. It is a pre-requisite to professional level training.
The best rescue is one you will never have to make. Which is why the RAID Master Rescue course has a significant focus on risk assessment and advanced buoyancy control to minimise the chance of having to perform a rescue or be rescued.
This unique course builds confidence and ability, providing the skills and knowledge to help you better understand how to respond safely and efficiently to surface and underwater emergencies to a maximum depth of 20m/66ft.
