RAID International has announced they are introducing a new wreck diving programme.
The first component of this programme is the 'Basic Wreck Diving course'.
RAID believe that some divers feel that wreck diving is a super advanced form of diving, when in reality it does not have to be like that. The RAID Basic Wreck Diving Course acknowledges that a number of divers just want to go down and look around the wreck site. They may never want to penetrate the inside, and in some instances the wreck is just not suitable for this kind of exploration.
RAID feel this course responds to the typical wreck dive that the average diver will conduct - non-technical in shallow depths. A number of topics are covered including wreck conservation and preservation, equipment configuration, dive management and open water considerations. Upon completion of the course divers will be able to swim safely, photograph and map wrecks from the outside, or extend their education in the soon-to-be released RAID Advanced Wreck Diver course.
RAID International Recreational Training Director Mark Mc Crum said:
“The RAID Wreck Diver Programme provides sensible practical training. It seamlessly integrates into our other RAID courses programs."
