Master Rescue

From $375 

In order to be a good diver, you first need to be able to look after yourself and then be able to help others if need be. The RAID Master Rescue Diver is a must for all experienced divers, in particular, those who wish to take responsibility for the safety of other divers. It is a pre-requisite to professional level training.

The best rescue is one you will never have to make, which is why the RAID Master Rescue course has a significant focus on risk assessment and advanced buoyancy control to minimise the chance of having to perform a rescue or be rescued.

This unique course builds confidence and ability, providing the skills and knowledge needed to help you better understand how to respond safely and efficiently to surface and underwater emergencies to a maximum depth of 20m/66ft.


Course Content

The RAID Master Rescue course teaches you, above all, how to minimise the risk of a rescue needing to be performed, and in the event of a rescue, being able to quickly and effectively provide assistance to the diver/s in distress.

Through a combination of our cutting edge online training and interaction with your RAID Instructor, your diving knowledge will be honed to a very high level, preparing you to look after others. This will ultimately prepare you for RAID Divemaster training.
