Kelvin said, “Having dived in some of the most inaccessible and challenging locations across the globe I know the need for robust training systems to enable us to explore underwater safely and responsibly are paramount. The RAID online management of courses are environmentally sound and accessible worldwide. RAID’s rigorous standards are extremely appealing to me, so I am delighted to join the RAID Team."
