RAID has a lot of similarities to PADI, after all dive theory can't change that much just because someone else is writing the manual. There are some differences to highlight as well. RAID is 100% online theory, but the instructors see the results making it easy to consolidate and reinforce the learning. The skills taught and mastered are the same with the emphasis on true neutral buoyancy which we here at Dive Rutland already teach and enforce with all of our students, as diving is not about kneeling.
We have had a fantastic two days learning and cannot wait to put it all to practice.
