The course is designed to train students in a leadership role with the correct attitude above others in the safe use and technology of Rebreather diving with no decompression, to a maximum depth of 40 metres/132 feet.

This programme is broken into two sections:


This theory or academic section, which any person may take and complete, followed, without obligation, the Second Section which is the practical session where you can learn with an Instructor the underwater skills necessary for this level of training and complete your certification.

When you purchase this programme on-line you are effectively purchasing the access for 6 months to the theoretical content, knowledge reviews and exam for this level of diver training, which consists of download PDF manuals with detailed information broken into 9 sections covering the following subjects:

Diving In General
Confined Water Training
Open Water Training

There is such a wealth of information in these comprehensive manuals and is well worth the cost alone!

RAID provides you with more information and knowledge development than any Instructor lead lectures only or short video can provide in a limited time period generally offered.

Any person can purchase this course will receive the comprehensive academic training package, without the need to complete the practical session (no obligation).

The on-line training package includes:

PDF Manuals
Quick Quiz and Exam (open book)
6 month access to manuals (can download)


With your RAID Instructor

Confined water - time enough to master skills as detailed + Speciality requirements
Open Water - minimum 6 hours underwater + Speciality requirements

NOTE: If the Diver already has complete a Speciality for the Rebreather they are using, then the added time for the Speciality is not required/included.


Upon successfully passing the practical training you receive:

International Diver Certification
On-line logbook
Diver certification E or C-card
Unrestricted access to manuals

We must point out that the practical training cost (Second Section) is not included in the online fee. This cost must be discussed between yourself and the appointed RAID dive centre / Instructor who will complete the practical training.

The core rebreather courses cover rebreather diving in general and the Speciality course covers the details of the unit / rebreather you will be using. You need to complete both cover rebreather level AND the unit Speciality to get your diver certification.
