RAID Phuket Technical Diving Courses

The new RAID Sidemount course is a fully comprehensive recreational course that bridges the gap between recreational and technical teaching. As you would expect from any RAID course, it is highly devoted to bring divers from any level of certification to have an ability to be able to hover ‘animated in suspension’ in the water. This, coupled with a series of valued skills will give any Sidemount diver the ability to be confident in their new equipment and skill set in any situation.

A tried and tested program, developed over 8 years from a technical and cave background, it has proven to be a huge success over the years, changing not only the divers’ physical and practical abilities but also opened up a completely new vision of awareness with technical aspects in mind.
A single or twin cylinder configuration, reducing the stress off your back, making your valves now easy to access due inability to reach behind your head for those valves on a twinset, its the perfect system to link into a DECO 40 or DECO 50 program.
