RAIDaptive Open Water 20
The RAIDaptive program was designed to bring the sport of diving to persons with disabilities by adapting the RAID Open Water 20 course to the abilities demonstrated by the diver with disabilities. The title, RAIDaptive, is a combination of RAID and Adaptive to identify to the diving community the intent of the program.
How It Is Applied
The RAIDAptive Course is designed to teach individuals with disabilities to become certified divers, with the goal of using certified RAIDaptive Dive Buddies to compensate for those skills that they cannot independently perform. The student will be certified according to the following Designations:
To become a certified RAIDaptive Open Water diver, the students need to have basic swimming skills, be comfortable in the water, and should be in a good overall health, have a mature attitude, sound judgement and self-discipline to follow the guidelines that they will be taught for safe diving. Medical clearance from a registered diving Doctor is also required.
