As RAID continue to grow we are adding to our teaching resources available at no additional cost to our instructors, divemasters and students. Recently we have been working hard to create open circuit skills videos that complement the RAID Open Water 20 course materials for students. These can be found, along with other useful videos, on the Dive RAID YouTube channel.

The videos break down the skills into step-by-step guides for students to watch before their confined sessions or as a resource when a student is struggling with a particular skill.

On the YouTube channel you can also find a great video from the RNLI on diver safety. This video can be used as a educational resource for all level of diver and can be shared on social media or embedded onto your dive centre website.

Calling for help and visibility on the surface

This video makes up part of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI UK) sponsored Sea Survival program. Being seen on the surface and knowing how to call for help once on the surface, are of vital importance when diving. This video discusses both points from a surface supervision and rescue point of view, and not merely form a diver perspective.

We have identified that 75% of log-ins to the RAID system come through the mobile site, as technology and mobile applications improve, these figures will continue to grow. It is clear that we will need to resource the mobile site more in the future and this is one of our priorities at RAID.

We recommend that you make yourself familiar with the RAID system through the mobile version of the site. In the future we will be converting the desktop site to match the mobile site so that both versions are the same.

Winter is coming – for many of us it is already here with icy and snowy conditions throughout the country. This doesn’t mean that diving and teaching needs to come to a complete stop; use this time to get students interested in non-diving courses or specialities like Drysuit diving. Here is our list of RAID recommended winter month courses:

Equipment Specialty – a great course for any diver, giving them the chance to understand more about how their dive equipment works and how to care for it.

Nitrox Specialty – increase your no decompression time on recreational dives perfect for divers with liveaboard trips or diving holiday planned for next year.

First Aid – the RAID first aid course is tailored towards divers and dive related illness and injury. A fun and informative course for both instructor and student.

Drysuit Specialty – ideal for students wanting to continue their diving throughout the winter months. Drysuit diving can also help divers improve their buoyancy and trim in the water.

If you are diving throughout the winter months remember to take extra care both in and out of the water. Diving in the winter can give you some of the best visibility and conditions so enjoy it while you can!
