Why Become A Raid Open Water Diver?

Few people have the fortune and privilege to interact with the wonders of our underwater world, and diving is a sport all the family can all do together, even kids as young as 10 years old. The Open Water 20 diver program may be your first journey into the wonderful world of scuba diving, and you are going to have the time of your life.

How Do I Get My Certification?

To earn your Open Water 20 Diver certification, you need to read the manuals for each section and complete the quizzes. Once you have passed all the quizzes, you can proceed to the exam. It is important to select and contact a RAID Dive Centre and arrange for your practical in-water training. They will arrange your class and in-water sessions and help you with equipment advice or purchases.
The quizzes and exam are “open book”. This means you are required to read the manuals and then if needed, research the manual to find the correct answers.
