RAID Launches New Training App For Smartphones

RAID launched a new training app at this week’s DEMA Show 2014 in Las Vegas.

Divers can use the RAID App to finish their theory training and practical skills with the approval of their RAID Instructor on or offline 24/7 anywhere on the planet.

Barry Coleman, RAID founder and leader of the app’s development team, said the app “is packed with special features and is so easy to use. Typical of many RAID products we have focused on utility and functionality with our App and deliberately avoided the temptation of loading up a lot unnecessary graphics which do not aid the learning process. So as a result, the free download of our App won’t burn your access time and syncs directly with your RAID login.”

Android device users can download the app now through the Google Play Store, and Apple iPhone or iPad users that have iOS8 operating systems installed will be able to download it by the end of this month.

The App will be able to sync with the RAID website, a diver’s RAID personal login and all the courses that the company has on offer.

“A special feature of the RAID App is the option to download any of your courses if you chose to work offline,” Coleman said. “It allows you to save your training manuals you need, depending on internet speed and available space. The App also allows you to log your dives and choose which documents you may need.”
