We Need You!

Can you help us build our image library?

We are looking for high quality images to feature in our manuals, social media posts, magazine articles and beyond. We’re looking for everything diving related – from the all-black clad CCR diver to smiling faces around a pub table!

If you think you’ve got what we’re looking for, please get in touch and we’ll send you further details.

Brand New O2 Administration Specialty

The RAID Oxygen Administration Specialty is now live and is the latest addition to our course range.

Our Director, James Rogers commented, “Divers need to know how to administer oxygen safely.  Many do, but there’s still divers out there who don’t have this life saving skill. Oxygen Administration will become a prerequisite for future Divemaster candidates and we actively encourage all professional members to ask themselves: are they up to date with teaching this programme?”

The course is delivered in traditional RAID style; with a user course for divers and an Instructor course for professionals. Not only are divers introduced to the different types of equipment, assembly, disassembly and delivery methodology, they’re also given a rationale on the care, potential hazards and clear diving advantages of effective oxygen administration.

For more information on this new specialty, or to apply for the instructor rating, contact the office.

RAID UK & Malta’s Team Grows Again!

RAID UK and Malta are pleased to announce a new Recreational Instructor Trainer in Malta and a move to the UK for another.

For over two years, Olivier Van Overbeek has been flying the flag for RAID in Malta. His time has been extremely productive – not only has he been delivering high quality RAID training, he has also helped to boost the number of RAID Dive Centres and Professionals in the region.

Oli is now moving to the UK to further develop Diving Matrix and continue supporting RAID activities. Although Oli will be based in the south, he will provide training all over the UK plus Malta will still feature as one of Diving Matrix’s Technical Training locations of choice.

He leaves a pioneering RAID footprint on the Islands and we congratulate him on his efforts over the least two years.

Stepping in to Oli’s position is Toby Van Pooss. As an experienced Instructor Trainer and owner of New Dimensions Scuba, RAID feel that Toby’s background will further develop and support members in Malta and Gozo.

To further assist the growing infrastructure in Malta, RAID also welcomes Steve Wilkinson – one of the islands top Technical Instructors. Steve will offer recreational and technical training and will be supporting the Maltaqua team with the RAID product.

RAID continue to grow rapidly with their unique blend of quality online training and modern in-water techniques. All Dive Centres and Professionals interested in standing out from the crowd are encouraged to contact the RAID UK & Malta head office to discuss the transition further.
