The RAID Master Freediver course is the apex of the RAID Freediving program and demonstrates your arrival as truly accomplished freediver
In the pool you’ll be holding your breath for at least 3 minutes 30 seconds and swimming dynamic at least 75 metres. You’ll learn new techniques to counter depth effects and performing deeper and more complicated rescues. In the classroom you’ll examine in more detail the physiology, psychology and physics of freediving, such as how diving to 30m and beyond affects the residual volume of your lungs. The RAID Master Freediver course from Go Freediving is the specialist deep diving qualification that will equip you with everything you need to know to take you into the deep blue and beyond!
Your RAID Master Freediver course begins when you book your place. We’ll email you an information pack containing everything you need to know about the course, our suggestions for preparing, as well as information about accommodation and logistics.
We’ll also send you a link to the RAID Master Freediver theory materials and course handbook, which is provided online by RAID. All of your course materials are accessed online and they’re kept up-to-date by RAID, so that after your course you’ll have lifetime access to the very latest guidance and information. Home study means you can familiarise yourself with the basics at your own pace and will mean more time for you in the water over the weekend of the course.
You must complete the theory and pass the final exam before the date of your booked course or you will not be allowed in the water.

For as long as Go Freediving is trading, we will happily answer your questions and provide advice via email, telephone or in person about freediving (within the scope of your course). So if you have any queries about kit, training, where to go freediving abroad, or how to improve your technique, we’ll be there for you.
Wetsuit hire is included in the price of your course however if you have your own we recommend you use it. If you own a scuba wetsuit you can use that – we recommend a minimum suit thickness of 5mm. Triathlon wetsuits are not suitable as they tend to be too thin and usually don’t include a hood.
If you’d like to hire one from us, contact us with your height, weight and build (slim, average or large).
