RAID instructors are highly regarded in the diving industry. Tooled up with modern diving techniques, they stand out from the crowd. Being associated with the fastest growing diver training agency will present many opportunities and students benefit from the best training available to them.

Dive RAID OC Instructor

Cross Over To become a RAID Open Circuit Instructor

At RAID thier philosophy is to train instructors to a higher standard so you can teach new and existing divers to be safer and more environmentally aware. This comes in the form of better/more efficient equipment configuration, modern skillsets, and being able to hover!

The RAID crossover programme is about understanding thier efficient and comprehensive online system, role playing as student and instructor, in-water skills activities and visualising the instructor/dive centre signing off process.

RAID Instructor Orientation Registration

All crossover candidates MUST register with Dive RAID and affiliate to Diving Bali prior to enrolment on the RAID Orientation Programme. Please also add a passport like photo to your RAID profile. Once this is completed RAID will give you access to the required courses online. It is advised to do this as soon as possible to allow time to complete the quizzes and exams for the online course.
