This brand new show, spearheaded by Scuba Diver Magazine and DeeperBlue, already has a superstar line up. Now we are planning our RAID UK & Malta team!
Most people in the dive industry love having fun and active instructors typically love to teach. One thing we all hate is paperwork. Not surprisingly when an incident does occur there is a mad scramble to make sure the paperwork is in place but unfortunately the paperwork is often incomplete or missing. This is certainly not the time to find out.
If you are looking for the opportunity to improve the quality of dive training, or to make life easier as a dive centre owner, or, most importantly, to increase your profitability safely, then RAID offers all of this and more.
I want to highlight one important area of RAID Membership. You may have now noticed that all Instructors will need to login and update their Medical & Liability Release (MLR) which will be valid until 1st October 2018 (renewal date) after which it will expire and following completion again, will be valid for a full 12 months (Expiry 1st Oct 2019).
Any question with ‘YES’; requires dive medical clearance, which should be sent to RAID UK for uploading to the relevant Instructor profile.
Once the medical is verified (HSE or other recognized doctors note) the status will look like this:
The RAID App will also be updated this week to follow the MLR requirements.
Any new Members can renew now (from July) and gain an additional three months of Membership for your first year.
It’s so important to be honest here, I’m 49 with at least 49.000 miles on my body-clock, my HSE medical covers me for my Yes’s, so me, my students and my company are all protected when they’re uploaded correctly onto the RAID system. It’s essential that everyone is truthful here!
It’s also required that all teaching pro’s have Public Liability insurance, you should supply this to us, where it’ll be uploaded too.
Remember, your allocated Dive Centre will help you with your Membership and the supply of these important documents. RAID UK and Malta only deal dive centres ideally, so ask your local RAID to help you.
So be Green not Red and renew like a pro!
First things first – thank you for your support.
