    I find RAID (Really Arrogant Internet Divers?) *just pissing* to be interesting.

    I suffered for years from run-of-the-mill, agency-induced, lack of trim/buoyancy skills. Fixed that with great effort on my part.

    But now I trust nothing. We all know that it is the instructor and not the agency. So a new agency appears.

    Exactly what are the minimum requirements for a RAID instructor?

    I certainly like the sound of it. Has RAID reached a critical mass where the C-cards are accepted without a long explanation?

    RAID is a member of the RSTC. Very large presence in SE Asia. I'll get the numbers but so far I haven't heard of anyone having any issues with certification. There's a couple of hundred thousand certified RAIDers worldwide so it's just getting bigger.

    Thanks, that is reassuring.

    I bailed on a course a where the instructor was out of breath just getting into a D/S. This is a "Trust Me" dive. All training dive are. I'm trusting my ass to you? Nah.

    -Good answer, that is all...

    Also similar to NASE with regards to some of the limitations on the website from the sound of it :wink:

    The VERY first thing I do with students is the pool is "stand with full gear, put reg in your mouth, put face in water and take 3 breaths". The VERY second thing I do is start buoyancy drills and skills. Within 20 minutes of the first pool session my students have good buoyancy skills and all those other skills are done neutral. Thank you SDI-TDI.

    Funny story, I has a referral student come in from another agency (P_ _ _) for her OW checkout dives. First session at BHB her buoyancy check went great. She had really outstanding buoyancy for a OW student! The first skill I signaled was mask clear. She immediately dropped to her knees and cleared her mask. <sigh>
