Completing Your Admin For RAID

There are a few things you will need to do via your RAID account. Some of these you may have already done, but they must all be completed if you wish to become certified. If you have not completed your skills, please see the additional options we have for returning students, below.
1) RAID sign off and paperwork – Please keep a manual record of your dives as RAID is in the process of upgrading their site and you are not able to upload dive logs at the moment.
2) Your named instructor has already gone into your course and signed your skills off. You must now go in and countersign all of your completed skills so I can then do the final sign off and get your digital card to you. You must sign off your confined water skills AND your open water skills – so two ticks are required! Please note some users have issues signing off their skills using chrome. There are two work arounds – the simplest is to use another browser such as firefox to access RAID. The second option is to hover your mouse over the column where you need to click your skills and click in line with the skills description is (there should be a check box there, but it is missing for some Chrome users). You will not see a tick appear until you save and refresh. You must have added a profile image and completed the medical on Raid in order to complete the certification.
Important Note: All RAID courses have an expiration date. If you do not sign off before the expiration date of your course your certification card cannot be issued and you may be subject to additional costs if you still wish to become certified.

Still Have Skills To Master Before Becoming Certified?

Around 40% of students do not complete all the skills required on their RAID course, so if that includes you, don’t be disheartened. You’ve already learned new skills and are well on your way to becoming certified. If you are keen to get your certification we have a number of options:
1. You organise a private tuition session with one of our instructors, and you can be tutored and then taken through the skills exercises and signed off as applicable. Prices for this will vary, so get in touch if you wish to learn more.
2. You can sign up for a Freediving Masterclass with Emma Farrell. The classes are held at Vobster Quay and are for anyone that has done a freediving course, even if you have not yet passed. The masterclass will help you perfect your skills and is also a chance to have any skills signed off that you did not manage to complete on your course in order to be certified. These classes are not aimed at depth but rather focus on skills and technique. There are only a few classes per season and classes are limited to 4 students per class and are very popular so please book this as soon as possible so you don’t miss out.
2.  You can become a returning student. This means when we have space on one of our scheduled courses, you can return for one or two days of the course at a cost of £100 per day (not including kit hire or Vobster entry) and enjoy the tuition and skills tests in order to be signed off. You can return as many times as needed, you just need to book your space via the link.
3. You can attend a club day at Vobster (this costs £20 per day for non-Go Freediving Club members, or Free to members, but does not include Vobster entry fee) and practice your skills with other club members.
4. You can join one of our freediving holidays where you can have a week of sunshine and freediving and complete your course skills. You can even take the next level course while you are there!


Once you have become certified, there are a number of other options for you to learn, progress and immerse yourself further into the freediving world.

Further RAID Courses:

If you have completed your RAID Freediver Course, you may want to go to the next level – the RAID Advanced Freediver Course. This page tells you all about it and lists when our next courses are being held.
If you have completed your RAID Advanced Freediver Course, you may want to reach Master status and become a RAID Master Freediver! This page tells you what is required and lists when our next course is being held. However, if you are interested in taking your Master course, please let me know as this course is often demand led.

Online Classes for freediving

To Practice At Home

Here is a FREE 30 minute gentle breathing optimisation class for you to try.

This class is suitable for all levels.

For complete beginners you will find this class a gentle introduction. For experienced breathwork students you will find this a relaxing session which can be integrated into your regular breathing sessions to offer restorative and nurturing breathing exercises.

Here are 2 short 15 minute classes – perfect for practising daily upon waking and before going to bed.
