RAID is proud to announce the update of the RAID Deco 40 and 50 diver and instructor programs and the launch of the Deco 40 and 50 Instructor Trainer module. 

We have taken a new approach to the development of all our new technical manuals where the bulk of the information is contained in the entry level programs, and then as divers progress, they are presented with only the information needed to make that progression.

Therefore, the Deco 40 and 50 manuals vary only slightly since divers can enter at either the Deco 40 or 50 level, depending upon their experience, certification level and personal desire.

Contact RAID UK for more details: info@diveraiduk.com
