RAID Launches Its New Scuba Reboot Course


RAID has announced the launch of its new Scuba Reboot online course to help divers who have not dived in a while return to the ocean safely.

With most dive skills being perishable and many divers having a big gap in their diving activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the new RAID course is the perfect opportunity for a refresh.

The Scuba Reboot is open to certified Cadet Diver, Junior Open Water 20 Diver, or Open Water 20 Diver certifications or their equivalent. The minimum age for enrollment is 10 years old.

The course consists of a comprehensive review of academic knowledge, a confined/pool skill review session and an optional open water dive.

According to RAID’s VP of training, PJ Prinsloo:

“Scuba Reboot was the missing piece of RAID’s program. Our instructors were telling us that Scuba Reboot would be a terrific addition filling an obvious need right now with so many divers finally getting an opportunity to go diving after what’s been a longer than usual break <between seasons>…Of course, the primary audience for a reboot is our RAID students, but this course also works for ANY diver who is curious to find out what diving The RAID Way™ is all about. The course is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase what makes our way of teaching and our agency’s approach to dive planning and execution a little different… An instructor who is unfamiliar with a student’s abilities can use this new program as a structured one-day review to be sure that they are ready to take on an advanced RAID program, and that they will get the maximum value from it.”
