2016 was a very successful year for RAID. Internationally we experienced unprecedented growth and achieved many milestones including joining the Recreational Scuba Training Council (RSTC) as an Associate Member.
At RAID UK & Malta, we were so successful in 2016 that our Managing Director James Rogers appreciated the need to grow the team "to meet the ongoing requirements of our new and existing RAID dive centres”.
This year is set to be even bigger for RAID with a packed events calendar and, as James proudly announced, “the launch of many new initiatives including new courses and the only OFQUAL accredited First Aid and teacher program in the dive industry”.
To support our rapid development, RAID has appointed three new members to the team; Rob Mackins, Robyn Black and Nic Emery.
A RAID Instructor Trainer and creator of RAID International’s brand new First Aid programs, Rob has been appointed as First Aid Manager for UK & Malta. James stated that “With a background of over 20 years in teaching and lecturing with a First Aid and Emergency Care Course focus, Rob will spearhead RAID’s entry into this sector”.
“As more dive centres tune in to RAID’s way of thinking, I was very aware that our customers needed a dedicated person to answer their questions and guide them through the RAID system”, noted James. Robyn has been appointed as RAID UK & Malta’s Membership Services Co-Ordinator. James said that Robyn “has an in-depth knowledge of the range of services offered by RAID, and as a RAID Instructor Trainer, knows the system inside out.”
Nic has been involved in the diving industry for over a decade, and with experience in graphic design, content marketing and social media management, she has been appointed as RAID’s new Communications Co-Ordinator. James Rogers remarked “RAID UK & Malta has a dedicated following, but with Nic’s help I believe we can expand our brand and get the RAID message out to more people”.
