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 is a must for all experienced divers and in particular those who wish to take responsibility for the safety of other divers. It is also a prerequisite to professional level training.
The best rescue is the one you 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 chances 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, at a maximum depth of 20m/66ft.
