About the RAID Advanced35 advanced diver course

RAID Advanced35 is an advanced diver course that takes your diving to a distinctly higher level. Don’t confuse this certification with other “Advanced Open Water” courses that are merely a collection of glorified fun dives. This truly developmental course will transform you into a much more competent, confident, and comfortable diver!

In addition to a comprehensive eLearning study, this course consists of 3 confined water sessions and 6 intensive open water training dives (6+ hours in-water practice). The course qualifies the diver to conduct advanced no-stop dives to a maximum depth of 35m/115ft.

Advanced Diver Course Prerequisites

  • Minimum 15 years old.
  • Certified RAID Open Water 20 or equivalent.
  • Nitrox qualification is recommended
  • Register for FREE at

This course is open to divers of all levels – you do not need to be an experienced diver. As long as you have your Open Water Certification, you have the necessary core competencies to continue your diving journey with Advanced35 training. Many students choose to go directly from Open Water to advanced diver certification; there is a minimum number of dives required. Trust me to guide you every step of the way as you take your confidence, comfort and competency to another level!
