Pro Member Medical & Liability Release

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!

The year has started with another flourish of RAID activity, and our members will need service support from their RAID Regional Office (RRO) from time to time.

Here’s a guide on how to order from RAID UK & Malta in 2018.

 

Buying Credits

Dive Centres should always buy their credit directly from their RRO. The trade level pricing we offer makes RAID a leader in materials use and supply.  Minimum stock levels can be maintained using the “credit bank” on your dive centre profile. The 2018 Pricelist is available (get in touch if you’ve not yet received it) and the good news is that RAID pricing has remained unchanged this year!

The Dive Centre can buy goods and services for their “instructional team”. For example, if you have four instructors affiliated to your centre, all wanting to renewal their Membership at the same time, the centre can do this through the RRO, potentially saving money too. The requirement is that all goods and services bought through the RRO are paid for for by the Dive Centre and not the individual RAID Members.

 

Merchandise

RAID UK has a selection of physical merchandise available (see Pricelist). As these will need to be shipped, we reserve the right to charge shipping fees to cover our costs here, and we don’t profit on our shipping costs to you!

 

c-Cards

Plastic c-Cards have a set fee to Dive Centres (only £7.50) allowing for a £15/£20 retail point to our divers. This includes all shipping (standard post or international post) with a 3-7 working day delivery pledge. Large Dive Centres may want to consider a c-Card printer for their facility, allowing them to instantly print cards for their students.

 

Payment

We accept all credit and debit cards, with no additional fees. We don’t offer any payment terms, so all invoices must be paid in full up front. Please check if additional charges from your bank are added on international orders – these are at your own cost.

 

Instructors not affiliated to a RAID dive centre are unable to deliver RAID courses. However, they can still purchase courses and services for their own personal development through the RAID website shopping cart.

 

 

We hope this helps – let’s get busy.
