RAID announce new Core Rebreather Knowledge module



Diver training agency RAID are globally renowned for their involvement in rebreather training. Diving with rebreathers is becoming ever more popular and RAID have recognised the need for a rebreather manual that delves deep into the workings of these units.

RAID aspire to increase the use of rebreathers, while at the same time improve their safety. They believe that training is at the heart of all safe rebreather diving and are committed to bringing the latest, most current rebreather information to divers.

The Core Rebreather Knowledge module is designed to present rebreather divers, both technical and recreational with an advanced level of information.

The manuals are generic and not specific to one unit or even to one style of rebreather. The manuals are rich in information on rebreather design, use, components and much more.

There are five manuals within the module, they are:

  • Diving in General
  • Equipment
  • Physics and Physiology
  • Management
  • Rebreather Incident and Rescue

When participating in a technical entry-level program with RAID, the Core Rebreather Knowledge manuals will automatically download with the rebreather program that has been selected. Divers completing an entry-level program will be required to complete the quizzes and exam associated with the Core manuals before participating in any in water training.

RAID’s intelligent online system will issue a participation completion e-card once the program has been completed. The RAID Instructor teaching the program is required to confirm this program has been completed.

These manuals can also be purchased as a stand-alone. They are perfect for anyone wanting more rebreather knowledge, someone interested in rebreather, a diver participating in entry level rebreather training or someone participating in advanced level rebreather diving like trimix or cave or wreck.
